About the speaker

Over the years, Sonya JF Barnett has been championing women’s sexual rights in a variety of ways. In 2009, she founded The Keyhole Sessions under the moniker The Madame as a safe and welcoming community for artists to experience the union between sex and art. In early 2011, she co-founded SlutWalk Toronto as a way to combat victim-blaming and sexual profiling, for which she was named one of UTNE Reader’s Top Visionaries, one of More Magazine’s Top 50 Fiercest Women, a Torontoist.com Toronto Hero, and a Menschie {The Grid}. She’s a TEDx Toronto Fellow, having discussed the ramifications of infected language. Her erotic video work has been travelling festival circuits around the world, and she recently received a 2014 Feminist Porn Award Nomination for direction. Her latest project is After Bedford, a website that aims to educate Canadians on the current social & legislative landscape of sex work in Canada.

Ms. Barnett writes, speaks and produces with a clean conscience and a filthy mind.
