PULLMAN, Wash. – With 10 national speaking engagements scheduled between June and February, doctoral student Amber Morczek is earning distinction for discussing difficult topics in an honest and nonthreatening manner.

Her criminal justice and criminology dissertation at Washington State University examines the elements of rape culture within Internet pornography and its relationship to violence toward women. The connection between pornography and violence toward women is a topic most find thought-provoking, but few know how to approach.

Morczek wants to help by creating a safe space for dialog to make change. Her engaging and educational presentations are delivered with passion and humor.

“Every aspect of Amber’s existence is dedicated to making the world a better place for men and women,” said Faith Lutze, Morczek’s faculty advisor. “She encourages people to act when they may have turned away.”
