Maree Crabbe coordinates the violence prevention project Reality & Risk: Pornography, young people and sexuality. The project seeks to support young people and the broader community to critique the messages about gender and sex that are conveyed through mainstream pornography, and to promote understandings of relationships and sexuality that are based on respect, equality, mutuality, communication and consent.
Maree is co-producer and co-director of the documentary films Love and Sex in an Age of Pornography, broadcast on SBS in Australia and in six other countries, and The Porn Factor, broadcast on SBS this year. She is also author of In The Picture – a resource to support secondary schools to address the influence of explicit sexual imagery.
Maree has worked with young people – and on issues affecting young people – for over 20 years. She has developed and delivered programs focusing on sexual violence prevention, sexual diversity, pornography and the prevention of sexually transmissible infections.
Maree’s contributions to public conversations about young people, sexuality and pornography include interviews on television and radio, and articles in online and print media.
