Revenge porn is not part of ‘everyday life’. Something has gone terribly wrong with our teens (The Telegraph)

Revenge porn is not part of ‘everyday life’. Something has gone terribly wrong with our teens
In only one generation, the art of flirting has changed drastically.

Op-ed by Dr. Ann Olivarius on how the law needs to help girls from becoming revenge porn victims.

Extract:

And if a teenager, up to the age of 17, becomes victimised by revenge porn because a photo she sent to her boyfriend is then spread around the internet because he wants to humiliate her, under the law she will be just as guilty as he is for the making and distribution of child pornography. 

Who would ever go to the police to report him for revenge porn under those circumstances? Who would want to admit that revenge porn was a major concern for them at all?

Those of us who fought hard to get the recent revenge porn law on the books would never have expected it to offer less protection to children than adults. So what can be done?

I will always be grateful for your unwavering support of me. Equally, I will always be grateful for showing me how to find my voice and strength.

Compared with other law firms I’ve worked with, no one matches the combination that McO has of experience, brilliance, ferocious fighting and deep empathy for their clients.

Dr Holly Atkinson, Atkinson et al v. Mount Sinai Health System, Inc. et al

Because my case could not bear public scrutiny, a very powerful institution used massive financial resources to try to crush me for asking for my disability rights. This was a huge mistake, as they didn’t know that I would obtain McO representation. I couldn’t ask for better representation.
