As the report declares the ordinances enacted in Indianapolis, famously identified as American Booksellers v Hudnut, identified and described pornography from women’s point of view. The ordinance identified pornography as an act that discriminates against women, by portraying them in a subordinate role. According to the ordinance, women are depicted explicitly in any of the six explicit situations identified. Among the description provided in the ordinance to justify how women are depicted insubordination throughout pornographic materials is the general concept of portraying women as sexual objects, subjected to pain or humiliation during the act.
According to the study findings , the ordinance proposed that women, as sexual objects, they are tied up, mutilated, cut up, physically hurt, bruised, fragmented, truncated or being dismembered in either explicit pictures or a voice of the pornography materials. The terms used to describe the subordination state of women sought to prove the negative experience that women experience during the production of pornographic materials as well as the moral image presented to the viewers. Having been engineered by anti-feminist movement, the ordinance aimed at offering additional restriction to the production, distribution and use of pornographic materials in Indianapolis. Despite several court rulings classifying pornography as speech that should be protected by the first amendment, the laws introduced new restriction aimed at protecting the moral rights of women.
