"You are not at liberty to avenge the pornography industry in this country. We have the censorship laws for that."
Follow Rowena's journey, from seeing her first porn magazine through to her attempt to help an unhappy prostitute and from awkward laughter to disgusted protest at female subjugation.
Sarah Daniels's 1983 play explores the links between pornography, misogyny and violence towards women.
