Pornhub is the largest and most popular pornography website in the world. It is generating millions of dollars in advertising and membership revenue with 42 billion visits and over 6 million videos uploaded per year. And visits have only increased during the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet it has no system in place to verify reliably the age or consent of those featured in the pornographic content it hosts and profits from.
And indeed, mounting evidence shows that films of the rape, abuse and trafficking of both women and children are hosted on Pornhub with disturbing regularity.
In "#Traffickinghub: How Pornhub is enabling sexual exploitation and what we can do about it, " Laila Mickelwait, Director of Abolition for Exodus Cry will discuss how Pornhub enables, promotes and profits from sexual exploitation and what we can do to address the issue.
