In The Problem of Pornography, Susan M. Easton argues that it can. Using John Stuart Mills harm principle as a starting-point, Easton explores and evaluates the feminist and liberal arguments in the debate on pornography, moral independence, censorship and the right to free speech. Given the problems of proving harm in the case of pornography, she argues that the concept of autonomy may provide a more suitable foundation for regulation, and shows how the legislation against incitement to racial hatred might serve as a model for legal constraints on pornography.
