Last night I attended a special preview screening of Taryn Brumfitt's new film Embrace. Throughout the film Taryn travels the world to interview an impressive range of women about their attitudes to their bodies including Adelaide researcher Professor Marika Tiggemann; UK talk show host/photographer Amanda de Cadenet; body confidence activist Harnaam Kaur; motivational speaker Turia Pitt and Collective Shout co-founder Melinda Tankard Reist.Read more
Recently Plan partnered with Our Watch to survey 600 Australian girls and young women between 15-19 about personal safety and gender equality.
The findings indicated that levels of abuse and online harassment are endemic.
Some of the key findings included:
• 58% agreed that girls often receive uninvited or unwanted indecent or sexually explicit material such as texts, video clips, and pornography
• 51% agreed that girls are often pressured to take ‘sexy’ photos of themselves and share them
• 82% believe it is unacceptable for a boyfriend to ask a girlfriend to share naked photos of themselves
