Suppose one accepts MacKinnon and Dworkin's suggested

statutory definition of pornography. How does one who

generally accepts MacKinnon and Dworkin's views on the

pervasively harmful effect of pornography, and who accepts a need

for legal redress of the harms perpetrated by pornography, deal

with pornographic material?

The ordinance proposed by MacKinnon and Dworkin would deal

with such material by enacting legislation which gives people

adversely affected by the works, which clearly fit their

definition of pornography, a cause of action against the

producers, vendors, exhibitors or distributors for

"trafficking", or for an assault "directly caused by the

specific work.

I do not think liberals, or others for that matter, should

have much problem with the clause dealing with assault, since a

causal connection to specific works is demanded by it. However,

s. 3.2(iii) which deals with trafficking would be very

problematic for liberals and legal conservatives because it

creates a cause of action for a person contrary to the

traditional conception of a rights holder's cause of action.

This subsection reads:

Any woman has a claim hereunder as a woman acting

against the subordination of women. Any man, child or

transsexual who alleges injury by pornography in the

way women are injured by it also has a claim.

[emphasis added]

My goal in this paper is to suggest that a slight

modification to this subsection of the ordinance would make it

very difficult for liberals and legal conservatives to object to

it. This modification would restrict the cause of action to the

same persons as the other sections of the ordinance, namely, the

particular victim of the specified injury. I shall argue that

such a modification would largely cohere with the conception of

harm already at work in Ontario law, would afford only a minor

reduction in the potential efficacy of such legislation in

curbing the harm of pornography, and would offer to empower the

feminist camp which is behind such an ordinance with a mechanism

for social and political change if a sufficiently organized

feminist "vanguard" took hold of the opportunity to empower


Adrian Howe argues that the concept of social injury which

may be suggested by the ordinance recognizes the differential

harm felt by women from pornography. Howe suggests this social

notion of harm may be a necessary feature of any successful law

reform which is to address the huge social problem of male

domination and female oppression. The liberal notion of an

individuated human right fails to capture, for MacKinnon and

Howe, "the specificity of the harm to women." Thus, an

ordinance which did not create a cause of action "for women as

women" would fail to address the root of the social problem of

which pornography is a manifestation.

This conception of social harm, and thus subsection

3.2(iii), may offend liberals or legal conservatives in two ways.

First, the notion of non-individuated harm is antithetical to the

liberal conception of a rights holder claiming a cause of action.

Fundamental to a liberal conception of harm is the notion of the

individual who is autonomous, separate and fundamentally worthy

of respect. Rawls and Kant exemplify this view in their analyses

when they posit the undifferentiated self, free of any particular

qualities save that of being an agent worthy of a fundamental,

inviolable respect. This notion of the individual worthy of

equal concern and respect in the eyes of the state permeates

liberal conceptions of rights. It is also a fundamental, if not

exclusive, tenet of the common law of torts:

In tort litigation, the courts must decide whether to

shift the loss suffered by one person, the plaintiff,

to the shoulders of another person [emphasis added].

Clearly, on its face this conception of harm precludes the

notion of a harm suffered collectively which cannot be delineated

individually. While class actions are possible, and claims may

be made on behalf of groups such as company shareholders, this is

only by virtue of the fact that a legally recognized individual

has suffered an identifiable particular harm.

Thus, the conventional liberal notion of harm is radically

distinct from that outlined by Howe and MacKinnon. Since on the

liberal conception rights holders are autonomous, individual

selves who are essentially distinct, harm to one is distinct from

harm to another. It may be that a liberal conception of a rights

holder simply renders the concept of a social harm, and thus a

cause of action "for women as women" incoherent. I do not wish

to discuss whether it is possible to develop a complete liberal

notion of social harm. It is sufficient to note that the notion

of harm to rights holders inherent in the dominant liberal legal

discourse appears to preclude a cause of action by any individual

simply by virtue of their membership in an oppressed social


The problem for feminism is that the offence of trafficking

in pornography, if the cause of action were limited to

individuals who allege a direct harm stemming from this

trafficking, may seldom if ever deliver a remedy. Consider the

immense burden for a successful action:

She must first prove that the relevant materials are

pornography. They must be sexually explicit and they

must contain one or more of the features listed in the

definition. Second, she must prove that the materials

sexually subordinated her. The materials have to be

more than just offensive; this is not a law that

worries about offending sensibilities, it is concerned

with injuries to women. These injuries must be proven

in court. Only then will the plaintiff be awarded

damages or an injunction against the materials in

question [emphasis added].

The harm which a particular woman suffers as a result of

trafficking in pornography is not easily delineated. It is not

the physical assault or forced viewing outlined in the other

sections of the ordinance. Nor is it (for MacKinnon/Cole

proponents) a tangible physical harm in the "John hits Mary"


[P]ornography causes attitudes and behaviours of

violence and discrimination that define the treatment

and status of half the population .

[P]ornography institutionalizes the sexuality of male

supremacy ...

Since the harm caused by pornography is a social, collective

harm to women, conventional liberal notions of tortious harm are

seemingly unable to capture its seriousness (no single woman

appears to have been grievously harmed). Thus, to limit the

cause of action in the ordinance's trafficking provision to

particular, individual women might seem futile for feminists in

that a traditional liberal court would be unable to make sense of

the claims of harm involved.

The situation may not be quite so bleak. It will be useful

to examine the notion of a social harm, a harm which cannot be

tied directly to one victim, in the areas of criminal and tort

law. I suggest that Ontario courts already have the basis for a

framework of social harm in the federal statutory provisions on

hate literature, and in the principles which can be adopted from

the Bhadauria case.

The Criminal Code in sections 318 and 319 prohibits the

advocating or promoting of genocide and the incitement of hatred

of identifiable groups respectively. It is noteworthy that

"identifiable group" is defined as "any section of the public

distinguished by colour, race, religion or ethnic origin", but

does not include gender identification. These sections allow

groups, rather than individuals, to seek redress for the

dissemination of hateful or pro-genocidal material. Section 319

has been found to violate s.2(b) of the Charter of Rights and

Freedoms, but to be justified under s.1 of the Charter.

Thus, it is considered to be coherent in Canadian criminal law

for a somewhat intangible social harm to have been suffered by a

group through the publication of literature, and for a remedy to

be appropriate.

There are problems with this kind of legal protection from

social harm if MacKinnon and Cole's assumptions about the legal

system are accepted. The sections may take effect only on the

initiative of the Attorney General; it is this feature which led

to charges against Ernst Zundel [for the publication of

literature denying the holocaust and claiming the existence of a

Zionist conspiracy] being laid by Jewish activist groups under

s.181 of the Code. Thus, Cole's claim that legal redress for

the harm of pornography will not be effectively obtained through

reliance on intervention by a male-dominated executive branch of

government is supported by the failure of another

identifiable victim group to have charges laid by the Attorney

General in what appeared to many to be a clear case. In isolated

cases like Keegstra, where children were the group to whom

hateful information was being disseminated, the law recognizes

social harms as actionable. It is clear though that the

pragmatic barriers to criminal prosecutions for the harm

pornography causes to women, as opposed to society's moral

intolerance of the offensive content, are immense in a male

dominated liberal society.

What should not be lost in this pragmatic pessimism is the

adequacy of the conceptual foundation of a social harm which

arose in Keegstra. In this case, the social harm was seen

not only to affect the "targets" of the information, in this case

Jews, but to adversely affect "society at large". Furthermore,

the type of harm caused to the target group is similar to that

seen by feminists as suffered by women due to pornography:

Disquiet caused by the existence of such material is

not simply the product of its offensiveness, however,

but stems from the very real harm which it causes.

[E]motional damage caused by words may be of grave

psychological and social consequence. [They] can

constitute a serious attack on persons belonging to a

racial or religious group, and in this regard the Cohen

Committee noted that these persons are humiliated and

degraded (p. 214).

Referring then to a prominent liberal theorist, Dickson C.J.


In my opinion, a response of humiliation and

degradation from an individual targeted by hate

propaganda is to be expected. A person's sense of

human dignity and belonging to the community at large

is closely linked to the concern and respect accorded

the groups to which he or she belongs (see Isaiah

Berlin, "Two Concepts of Liberty", in Four Essays on

Liberty (1969), p. 118, at p. 155).

Let us call the harm to a particular woman which is suffered

as a result of trafficking in pornography a quasi-social harm.

It is distinguished from a social harm in that the victim

conceived as a member of a victimized class, but any action to

redress this harm is brought solely on her own behalf for the

harm personally suffered. Unlike the actions in the criminal

cases previously cited, claims here are not on behalf of a group

or on behalf of society as a whole, but are on behalf of an

individual who has suffered as a member of a class. The modified

ordinance I propose seeks to redress quasi-social harms. One may

question whether this (as distinct from addressing social harm)

is a tenable legal proposition or not. I suggest that it is, at

least in Ontario, given our established legal categories and

means of redress.

The Ontario Human Rights Code provides an example of an

attempt to redress quasi-social harms. It may be true that tort

law is unable to address the "social injury that occurs at a

personal level", but this is exactly the kind of injury the

human rights codes of the country have been enacted to redress.

While couched in the terminology of individual human rights, the

OHRC's categories of protection indicate a necessary connection

to the notion of a social harm.

The OHRC does not promise equality, equal treatment, equal

respect etc. of every person, its grandiose preamble

notwithstanding. What it promises is that injurious

discrimination to individuals due to membership in certain social

categories will be redressed by damages or injunction. These

social categories are those which are traditionally associated

with social injury - race, ancestry, place of origin, colour,

ethnic origin, citizenship, creed, sex, sexual orientation, age,

marital or family status, or handicap. Notice that many

categories are absent - foolhardiness, poverty, language group,

education, etc. What this indicates is that the OHRC does not

address an equality right per se, but addresses social harm as a

result of being eg. black, female, Croatian, gay, blind, 25 yr.

old, unmarried, etc. The remedies under s.40 of the OHRC are

nearly identical to those in the modified ordinance - damages,

including those for personal anguish, costs of the action, and


The modified ordinance would thus be quite similar to the

existing human rights legislation in Ontario in its recognition

of social harm and its suggestion of remedies. Where it would

differ is in its refusal to supplant the power of the victim to

pursue their own action in court, rather than deal with a

commission (and its discretionary powers) or board of inquiry to

investigate matters. Thus the modified ordinance would

remain "women-initiated and women-driven." It would also

differ from the OHRC in that it would clearly specify an as yet

unrecognized particular method of inflicting harm: trafficking

in pornography.

One well-known attempt to pursue a remedy for a quasi-social

harm outside the administrative realm of the OHRC succeeded in

the Ontario Court of Appeal, but failed at the Supreme Court of

Canada. In Bhadauria, the plaintiff alleged that she had been

discriminated against because of her race in applying for a

teaching position, and brought an action on a common law tort

basis of discrimination, and also cited a violation of the OHRC

as giving a cause of action.

Wilson J. in the Court of Appeal held that it was open to

the court to allow the expansion of the common law to include the

tort of discrimination, and would have allowed the action to

proceed. The question of whether the OHRC gave rise to an

independent civil action was not entertained given this


Laskin CJ. in the Supreme Court of Canada said that the OHRC

was meant to supplant the attempt to seek a remedy at common law,

not to supplement it, and thus barred the action from proceeding

either at common law or directly from an alleged breach of the

OHRC since Bhadauria had not attempted to invoke the procedures

of the OHRC for redress. What is noteworthy from this case

is that the question of whether this kind of harm was capable of

judicial consideration was never at issue. For the Court of

Appeal, the common law was fully capable of entertaining such a

harm as a tort. For the Supreme Court, the OHRC was seen as the

appropriate means of redressing such harm.

What the examples from criminal and tort law demonstrate is

that the notion of a quasi-social harm is tenable in our legal

system, particularly if individuals are given a statutory right

to pursue remedies for it. Thus, the modified ordinance would

simply indicate to the court a category of social harm which has

not previously been specifically addressed, the harm to women

from the propagation of pornography. The relative success at

achieving remedies from OHRC provisions, as compared to the

reluctance of the government to permit the exercise of the

Criminal Code provisions, indicates that retaining a civil right

of action for individuals will be the strategically better move

for feminists insofar as they are seeking redress. I shall leave

discussion of whether this is a tenable feminist political

strategy for dealing with pornography for a later part of the


It may be objected that the fact that our legal tradition is

capable of making sense of the notion of a quasi-social harm, and

thus could provide the judiciary with the conceptual tools to

adjudicate on a modified version of the ordinance, does not imply

that the modified ordinance and its conception of harm is

acceptable in a liberal framework. A liberal framework may

demand individuated harms, and the fact that our existing legal

framework can work outside that limitation simply demonstrates

that liberalism is not at the root of our legal framework's

evolving notion of harm. Thus, the ordinance may still be seen

by liberals as incoherent, or worse, to invoke an illegitimate

conception of non-individuated rights and afford state enforced

remedies for illegitimate purposes.

This liberal argument may be theoretically tenable, and thus

the "bleak" picture I painted may still apply insofar as we

favour a liberal legal framework. Furthermore, the powerful

liberal arguments concerning freedom of speech may override the

concern for the kind of harm contained in the ordinance. Perhaps

because the alleged harm has not been demonstrably linked to the

propagation of pornography, or is not a harm in the liberal

sense, but an expression of a preference, a liberal framework

could not permit the ordinance since it is an undue restriction

on free expression.

My response to this is twofold. First, given that

protection from harm is generally an acceptable justification for

a restriction on liberty in a liberal framework, it is up to

liberals to deliver a coherent rebuttal to MacKinnon et al.'s

contention that pornography causes genuine physical and

psychological harm to women, rather than just revulsion. To date

I have not seen a liberal rebuttal which did not make the

assumption that the root of the problem of pornography is simply

moral offence, i.e. strongly held preferences against the

propagation of pornography. I find the feminist claims about

harm to be very persuasive, and until they are addressed by

liberals in terms of a rebuttal of the harm, rather than by

reference to the moral disvalue of pornography, the onus should

rest on them.

Second, the ordinance is not an attempt to arrive at a

coherent theoretical position on pornography, but is an attempt

to solve a social problem through the mechanism of law. If the

attempt of the existing legal system to redress such problems is

illegitimate simply on abstract liberal grounds, it need not be a

fundamental practical concern of feminists to convince liberals

that the ordinance is acceptable. From the feminist strategic

perspective, it is enough to show, as I am attempting, that some

form of the ordinance coheres well with the existing legal

tradition whether that tradition is fundamentally liberal or

otherwise. The problem of theoretical legitimacy of the legal

system as a whole need not be of particular concern for

proponents of the ordinance; what is important is redressing the

harms done to women by the political and legal means at hand.

Moreover, I am not convinced, given the comments of Dickson J.

above, that liberal theories are committed to abandoning the

notion of harm and the means of redress which we see in the

existing legal framework. Perhaps then only certain categories

of liberalism would take objection with the notion of harm

addressed in Keegstra or the OHRC.

The second major problem with the ordinance for our

traditional liberal legal framework is the identification of the

source of the harm. The liberal conception of autonomous

individuals requires a particular victim and a particular

perpetrator. MacKinnon and Cole extensively consider the notion

of women as victims of a social harm, but give little

consideration to the notion of the perpetrators of this harm

beyond the simple definition of pornography. For them, it

would seem that if we can identify pornography, we can identify

the source of the harm. Clearly, identification of the

perpetrators is required before an action for redress can be

launched under the ordinance. Even though this is not a

theoretical requirement of every system of redress for harm,

it is both a theoretical and pragmatic requirement for launching

a civil action. The frameworks of criminal law, tort law and the

OHRC all presume an identifiable perpetrator of a harm can be

identified. Even if it were not a legal requirement for a

determination of entitlement to a remedy that one be capable of

identifying the perpetrator, it would be rather pointless to

launch an action for damages or injunction if there were no

identifiable legal person from whom to collect or upon whom the

injunction would act.

The harm from pornography is not easily traced to a single

source. MacKinnon et al. go to great lengths to point out the

complexity of the problem of pornography, that harm ensues not

just because of what the content of pornography is, but because

of how the messages of pornography contribute to the social

fabric of male hegemony. "Pornography institutionalizes the

sexuality of male supremacy." If, as has been argued,

pornography's harm is intimately connected to social practices,

then perhaps blame for this harm cannot be pinpointed to

pornography alone, or any particular source of pornography. It

is beyond the scope of this paper to attempt an analysis of

society which could offer insight into the distribution of

responsibility for reparation of the harm of pornography across

all members and institutions in society. Instead I shall

attempt to offer insight into the smaller problem of distribution

of responsibility among pornographers. Given the huge volume of

pornography, in many cases it may be impossible to pinpoint the

particular publishers, materials etc. which led to the quasi-

social harm against a plaintiff. I suggest that a solution to

the problem of perpetrator identity may be suggested by analysis

of the California Supreme Court's treatment of the problem in a

product liability case.

The excerpt from Linden above indicates that

traditionally the perpetrator of a tort must be clearly,

individually identified as the cause of the harm suffered by the

plaintiff. This traditional concept of causation in tort law is

not sacrosanct. In Sindell, an action launched by a victim of a

harmful drug succeeded against a multitude of pharmaceutical

companies even though no one company could be causally linked to

the harm suffered by the particular victim.

The plaintiff's mother had consumed the drug DES during her

pregnancy, and the plaintiff suffered birth defects as a result.

Evidence of the particular supplier of this drug to her mother

had long since vanished, but it was certain that some

manufacturer out of a number producing it at the time of the

pregnancy had promoted the drug without warning of the potential

side effects. The California Supreme Court held that, in the

absence of direct causal links to any particular supplier of the

drug DES, the plaintiff could recover damages in proportion to

the likelihood that any manufacturer was the one which provided

the drug to her mother during pregnancy.

This case has many obvious differences from a purported

action for harm from trafficking in pornography. It was certain

that the plaintiff had suffered a tangible physical harm from the

product; the only question was whether manufacturer A, B, C etc.

had been the perpetrator. What is interesting about the case for

proponents of a modified ordinance is that if a woman could

demonstrate to the court a harm from the propagation of

pornography in general, this case would indicate that all

pornographers or traffickers might be held liable in proportion

to some measure of their market share. Of note is the fact that

only "the producers of a substantial share of the market, that

is, over 50 per cent" needed to be sued to invoke this

"market share" liability notion. Thus, if a woman could

demonstrate the relevant quasi-social harm from pornography, and

name producers of at least 50% of the market share of the

relevant material, she would meet the threshold for bringing an

action. Of course, if a particular trafficker could show that

theirs was not a harmful brand of pornography (or more

accurately, was not harmful, and thus was not pornography), they

would be immune from the action.

One problem with this scheme is limiting the named

defendants to those who produce an identifiable kind of

pornography. I am not confident that in all or even most cases a

woman would be able to identify any particular kind of

pornography as that which caused the harm she experienced. This

is again due to the complex social nature of the harm, its

difficulty to pinpoint. There is a danger that an implausible or

untenable number of publishers or traffickers of other sorts

would be named in any given lawsuit. Furthermore, publishers

might begin a "third party" frenzy in an attempt to draw in

others to distribute the costs of the suit. However, it seems

plausible in at least some cases that a particular class of

material could be identified as the cause of the harm, and

since (as I shall soon argue) the importance to feminists of the

ordinance is not just its success at compensating particular

women, but its political and social effects, if some cases

succeed it will be a great victory.

Thus, the problem of identification of a perpetrator is not

insurmountable. There is at least some jurisprudence which would

give judges the tools to offer redress where individual

perpetrators cannot be identified. In particular cases there may

simply be single or multiple defendants, or there may be an

identifiable class of defendant where the particular perpetrators

are unknowable. In either case, the Ontario courts have

available to them the conceptual tools to deal with the matter.

The addition of the indeterminate perpetrators doctrine from

the DES case would be a welcome addition to the judicial

treatment of a modified ordinance, but successful actions would

not depend on it. It is not impossible to imagine the kind of

material that would be claimed to be harmful - it would

contain pictures or words where women in a sexual context are

dehumanized, objectified, shown as enjoying pain, rape or

humiliation, bruised, bleeding or hurt, etc. Once the

identification of harmful material is accomplished, the

publishers, distributors, etc. need to be identified and named.

Then the major problem for a woman to overcome as plaintiff under

s.3.2(iii) is to demonstrate that some genuine quasi-social harm

to her came about from the propagation of pornography, although

she was not assaulted or forced to view or participate in it. As

the Ruth M. testimony indicates, this is not entirely implausible.

To sum thus far, a modified version of the ordinance would

give individual women a cause of action for quasi-social harms

they have suffered as a result of trafficking in pornography.

While the hate literature provisions of the criminal code suggest

that our legal framework can deal with the notion of social harm,

greater success can be expected if the modification is adopted.

This modification would bring the feminist notion of harm

suggested by MacKinnon and her proponents within a legal

framework not unlike some of the existing legal schema in Ontario

which give civil remedies for quasi-social harms. The problem of

specifying a perpetrator, while great, is not insurmountable

given the doctrine in Sindell and the accepted notion of multiple

defendants in civil suits. Finally, though the ordinance may at

first seem unworkable (as any new legal doctrine does until it

has had judicial treatment), there are genuine fact situations in

which redress seems just and plausible.

I have mentioned feminist strategy in various contexts in

this paper. Of course there is debate within feminist circles

over the appropriate strategies for dealing with the problem of

pornography. The ordinance, modified or not, will not

satisfy every feminist. I think it would be a tenable

proposition for MacKinnon and her proponents not only in its

provision of a remedy for particular social harms suffered by

individual women, but because it will serve to expose the harm of

pornography to great public scrutiny, provided feminists devote

substantial political effort to particular cases.

MacKinnon et al. are concerned that the ordinance should be

a mechanism for changing the power relations sustained by

pornography. Since the harm of pornography is in a sense held

collectively, is social, and since the modified ordinance

restricts the cause of action to a single plaintiff on her own

behalf as a woman, the modified ordinance has arguably created a

law which is unlikely to be pursued. This is because the women

most likely to succeed are the least likely to proceed - they

either will not possess sufficient power in their situation of

subjugation, or they will not recognize the harm since for them

it is normalized, adopted, accepted.

It is probably true that the ordinance will not turn upside-

down the subjugation of women simply by offering remedies to

individual women. The harm of pornography to women is social;

individual remedies will not change that. However, the existence

of the ordinance, and the existence of women like Ruth M. and

Linda Marchiano who somehow break out from the bonds of a

pornographic existence mean that some cases will come to light.

If proponents of MacKinnon's ordinance adopt a suitable strategic

posture, the ordinance will be effective in meeting their aim of

limiting the harmful effect of pornography on women.

The task for feminists, I would suggest, is twofold. First,

organization of support mechanisms is needed to give women the

resources to come forward and challenge those who harm them

through trafficking in pornography is needed. The role of

support groups, groups to provide legal resources, groups to

provide personal support in a situation where one's established

values, relationships etc. are shaken apart, is crucial to the

success of actions brought under the ordinance. Individual women

would be truly exceptional to successfully bring forth an action

on their own.

Second, feminists must try to contain and confront political

opposition to the modified ordinance which can be expected.

There is little doubt in my mind that cases brought under this

ordinance would bring about much publicity, just as Keegstra and

Zundel did. Opponents will be quick to point out the

"censorship" involved, the restriction on freedom of expression,

and cry for the invocation of the Charter of Rights to thwart

efforts at redressing the harm to women. Feminists must strive

to bring the harm to the attention of the public, show the public

what it is that pornography does, as well as show the community

what it contains. The campaigns, the publicity in both lobbying

for enactment of the ordinance, and pursuing actions under it

will no doubt rally a significant segment of the community to

support women in their quest for freedom from harm. While it

will no doubt also create controversies, polarizations,

opposition, etc. (much as the Thomas hearings recently did on the

issue of harassment), the exposure of the issue will, I suggest,

be strategically beneficial.

To conclude, a version of the ordinance which is modified to

restrict the cause of action for trafficking in pornography to

individuals would be a tenable proposition. It would not be an

extreme departure from our liberal legal tradition, but would

afford redress for individuals who suffer quasi-social harms in a

manner consistent with existing legislation on discrimination and

hate literature. The problem of identifying perpetrators is

difficult, but existing doctrine in the sphere of negligence law

provides some insight into dealing with it. Furthermore, the

feminist goal of a large scale change in the power imbalance

perpetuated by pornography will at least be advanced, though not

fully attained, by the ordinance. I suggest that such a modified

ordinance should be given serious consideration by feminists and

our legislators. "Remedies for Pornography in the Ontario Legal Context"
