The fact that 1 in 3 women already become a victim of abuse in our country is confirmation that all of us TOGETHER have to do better. KOAW is committed to raising awareness about cultural sources and trends that contribute to domestic violence in our society. We are actively working to improve women's safety in our community.

We are in the midst of a global epidemic which threatens the safety of women and children all over the world. Mainstream porn today celebrates male dominance where women are abused, strangled and degraded -- for entertainment.
Today 90% of the most popular content contains physical and verbal violence against women.
Porn sites have become one of the biggest social influencers of our time. With more visits monthly than Netflix, Amazon and Twitter combined, they are a powerful social disruptor that have reshaped the content of media and our culture.
MindGeek, owner of Pornhub and the most lucrative porn sites, has been allowed to hijack the narrative about our sexuality and has normalized blatant discrimination and dehumanization of women. They have profited from women’s abuse by promoting images of women who are paid to act as if they enjoy being abused - a narrative men and boys are being groomed to believe.
In a world where 1 in 3 women are victims of abuse, we can no longer be complacent. As a movement, it’s time not only to help the victims, but also target violent pornography, one of the main sources that promotes violence.
We are all responsible for each other and only together can we triumph.
WE NEED YOUR HELP TO SPREAD THE WORD!
