My office was overtaken by cameras and tripods as I filmed today for Vice’s future vertical, Broadly.   A while ago I helped pitch a video about nonconsensual porn and it was green lighted for production! Voilá.  Broadly is set to launch August 3, 2015.  Its cheeky tagline:  “For women who know their place.”

A passionate new voice in the fight to ban revenge porn is Representative John Lesch of Minnesota.  He is spearheading a new state law and flew Chrissy Chambers and me in to talk to other stakeholders (lawmakers, representatives from the defense bar, victim advocates, etc.) about the dire need to offer this protection to women in Minnesota whose nude pictures are circulating on the Internet while the offenders bear no consequences.

Tune in tonight to HBO’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.  Although all contributors were sworn to secrecy, tonight’s topic on revenge porn was already leaked.  It was a pleasure educating John and his producers about civil remedies available to victims and the status of revenge porn laws around the state.  Although I won’t be on the air,

Remember how last summer the Internet practically shut down when nude and sexually explicit images of numerous female celebrities were posted to 4chan and Reddit without their consent? The world then helped make those images go viral.  The leak of the private photographs was popularly known as “Celebgate” and “The Fappening.”
Gawker published new information about a pending investigation of those behind these invasions.

SCOTUS trolled us yesterday with its decision in the Elonis case..
I went to Pix11 this am to talk some smack about yesterday’s disappointing SCOTUS decision in the Elonis case which is an utterly heartbreaking judgment for anybody who cares about domestic violence.
The case related to a Pennsylvania man who went completely nuts after his wife left him.

Live studio interview at Pix11 about the laws in place for victims of revenge porn. My co-interviewee disappointed me with her message to viewers advising them against taking and sharing intimate images in the first place.  The fault lies not with victims, but with offenders.  There is nothing inherently wrong with adults in trusting relationships to choose to express their intimacy digitally.

I was giving trainings to high schoolers in Brooklyn about dating violence as the Jermaine Cunningham story broke.  Fortunately I had a break at 5th period for Joe Mauceri to interview me.  The Jets linebacker is facing gun charges as well as third degree invasion of privacy charges for sending naked pictures of a woman without her consent.
