The Hearing: Episode 83 – Image-based sexual abuse and the law

THE CROSS-EXAMINATION – Back from our summer hiatus, in this episode, Becky Annison examines the growing issue of non-consensual image sharing. Or, as it’s more commonly known, revenge porn.

Becky talks to Elena Michael, a campaigner and co-founder of #NotYourPorn, and Honza Cervenka, a lawyer at the women’s rights firm McAllister Olivarius. They discuss the prevalence of image-based sexual abuse and the huge challenges that survivors face when seeking justice against perpetrators.
