Griffin articulated her anti-pornography feminism in "Pornography and Silence: Culture's Revenge Against Nature". In this work she makes the case that although the pursuit of "political freedom", especially freedom of speech, could lead to a position against the censorship of pornography, in the case of pornography the freedom to create pornography leads to a compromise of "human liberation" when this.

This book so gorgeously articulates the difference between eros and pornography. It is beautifully written, compassionate and profound.

Griffin is a master with words. Less prose-like than her well known classic Woman and Nature, Pornography and Silence is another attempt to unearth the pathological mind that divides men and women, culture and nature. I would not recommend this book for those first exploring the issue of (anti-)pornography (look instead for Gail Dines's "Pornland" or Robert Jensen's "Getting Off"). Those well read in or familiar with the last two centuries of Western literature and art, though, will find this book stimulating. Griffin uses the six lives of Franz Marc, Kate Chopin, the Marquis de Sade, Marilyn Monroe, Lawrence Singleton, and Anne Frank to navigate through two hundred years of silence and violence in Western culture. Also interesting is her challenge to the typical claim that pornographers are leaders in the liberation of the body and sexuality from Victorian-like repression. She makes a strong argument that, while apparently antithetical, the total demolition of borders found in pornography and the suppression of human sexuality found inherited from the religious tradition of the West share an invisible alliance.

"These pages will argue that pornography is an expression not of human erotic feeling and desire, and not of a love of the life of the body, but of a fear of bodily knowledge, and a desire to silence eros." (p. 1)
