From Roe vs. Wade to lesbianism to birth control, women’s liberation movements have made it their platform to give women a right over their bodies.

Some good and some bad have come out of similar movements in years past. But fast-forward to today and we see women are once again in a fight for liberation.

But this time, it is a personal one and one that is more often times fought all alone.

In the last 10 years especially, our culture of sexually provocative advertising and media have aided in the transformation of women, from sexually submissive to into sexually aggressive… and sexually obsessive.

As such this is resulting in a rapidly growing addictions to pornography and sexual promiscuity among women today.

Hi, I am Crystal Renaud and I am Founder and Director of Dirty Girls Ministries. We’re a Christian anti-pornography ministry created to help women overcome pornography addiction.

A recent article about us and this whole issue of female porn addiction in the New York Times has struck a cord and left some people saying, “Is this Crystal Renaud an anti-feminist? Masturbation and sexual exploration with porn use is normal. She is setting women’s lib back 100 years.”

But questions and statements like these could not be further from the truth. What is liberating about a woman being in bondage to sexual addiction?

Nothing.

I know the bondage of porn addiction firsthand as I spent 8 years of my own life in this addiction.

And what is liberating is taking back ownership of what we see, what we hear and what we do. And as a result, living lives free from the things that can keep us in bondage.

That, my friends, is liberation.

As I periodically post here at Covenant Eyes, I hope to shed light on this growing epidemic among women.

And hopefully in the process—spur women on to the real liberation that biblical sexual wholeness can provide.

“You were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love.” Galatians 5:13
