Transcript The following is a release from the Houston Organization Against Sexism in Media: IT'S TIME TO TAKE A STAND AGAINST SEX-VIOLENCE The Houston Organization Against Sexism in Media in conjunction with Women Against Violence Against Women,Los Angeles, are outraged at the recording industry's use of advertising images depicting women as victimized, abused and brutalized. Atlantic Record's ad campaign for the Rolling Stones album "Black and Blue" is one such gimmick, showing a battered woman with the Stone's album between her bound legs. Another recent example is the ad for the MAN album in the July 24 issue of Billboard magazine (MCA Records). We feel it is time to demand responsibility. Attention must be paid to the effect of the depiction of violence against women. Battered women and women of sexual assault are taunted by attitudes such as "no woman can be raped against her will" and "women invite assault." Psychoanalyst Natalie Shainess and others have found that as rape becomes more common in films and in society, rapists cease to see themselves as abnormal. The perpetuation of the myth that women like to be brutalized is dangerous and it is imperative that the recording industry join with others in taking a stand against violence in all media. The irresponsibility fo advertisers cannot be ignored. We urge people to write, wire or phone Stanley Gortikov, president of the Recording Industry Association of America, 1 East 57th Street, New York, New York, 10022, phone (212)688-3778, and ask that he bring pressure to bear on the recording industry as a whole to take responsibility and revise their policies regarding the use of violence in their sales promotion. This protest is being coordinated locally by the Houston Organization Against Sexism in Media, 1200 W. Alabama, Houston, Texas 77006.
