Each February for the last eight years, the National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) has released their Dirty Dozen, an annual list of companies promoting sexual exploitation through pornography, sexual objectification, prostitution and sex trafficking. NCOSE refers to the Dirty Dozen List as an "activism tool," allowing others to become aware of the various companies and corporations profiting from sexual exploitation.
The list has led to the improvements of policies at many companies. In the last year, we saw vast improvements in the policies of Visa, Mastercard, TikTok and Snapchat. But there is still so much further to go. This year, Amazon, Google's Chromebook, Netflix and EBSCO Information Services are four of the twelve companies listed.
