Following a campaign calling on 7-Eleven to withdraw unrestricted pornographic magazines that sexualise teen girls and encourage harassment, on September 4, 2019, Collective Shout announced a victory.
The magazines, including People and Picture, included headlines such as “X-rated Aussie Teens”, referred to teenage girls as “fresh flesh” and promoted ‘nip slips’ and upskirting, which is a crime in Australia. Another article claimed that girls desire being groped by strangers.
7-Eleven CEO Angus McKay said franchisees had been instructed to remove the magazines from sale as a priority.
