We are calling on Instagram to end the proliferation of sexual exploitation of children on its platform

Our three-year investigation exposed Instagram's rampant sexualisation of minors and highlighted the way Instagram is geared toward  connecting men to underage girls. In response to our joint, global #WakeUpInstagram campaign -  Instagram announced new safety features including a restriction preventing direct messages between teenagers and men they do not follow and an in-app reporting tool to report Instagram accounts that sexualise children. 

But Instagram doesn't remove the images reported through its in-app reporting system. The Meta-owned platform continues to be a purveyor of child sexual exploitation imagery, facilitating the sexualisation and eroticisation of underage girls.
