On Friday 8 May the Oxford Human Rights Hub launched a new podcast series, RightsUp, which addresses contemporary human rights issues in an accessible way.

The first episode, ‘Old Problems, New Media: Revenge Porn and the Law’ can now be streamed from the Hub's website, and will also be available on our iTunesU and University of Oxford Podcast pages.

This episode tackles the challenge of revenge porn – the non-consensual disclosure of intimate private images online, often following a relationship breakup. The episode features interviews with leading figures in the movement to address revenge porn, including Dr Holly Jacobs (founder of the Cyber Civil Rights Initiative and revenge porn victim), lawyer Dr Ann Olivarius, and academics Prof Erika Rackley, Prof Lilian Edwards, Prof Clare McGlynn, Prof Mary Anne Franks and Jessica Mason. The episode explains what revenge porn is, places the issue within a broader gender and social context, and considers free speech arguments.

The episode was written, produced, and edited by Kira Allmann, Dr Laura Hilly, Max Harris, and Tom Peach. RightsUp is grateful for the support of the AHRC-TORCH Graduate Fund and Professor Sandy Fredman, as well as all guests who contributed to the episode.
