South East Asia and the Pacific, Why Women Count

indonesiaDr. Nurdiati Akma is one of thousands of Indonesian women campaigning for a new law restricting access to pornography, by children and young people in particular. Indonesia has the widest distribution of child pornography of any country in the world, with surveys showing 80 per cent of 8-10 years olds had viewed pornographic materials because they found it so easy. Research shows women and children are the main victims – with perpetrators citing pornography as the inspiration for acts of violence and rape. The Women’s Congress of Indonesia and NGOs have been campaigning for new laws on pornography since 1998, with little success to date.
