If you are in the Penrith area, come and see our Cofounder, Melinda Tankard Reist speak.
Children and young people are bombarded with hypersexualised messages from media and popular culture. Even small children are worried about their looks and physical appearance, shaped and conditioned at the earliest of ages by a dominant message that tells them they have to be ‘hot’ to be liked and accepted.
The lives of young people are increasingly socialised, conditioned and informed by porn-related content online. They are exposed to this content not only before they have had sex, but often before their first kiss, with 11 years being the average age of first exposure.
Drawing from current global literature on the subject, Melinda will explore with parents and friends how the proliferation of sexualised images and messages contributes to a distorted view of bodies, relationships and sexuality, hampering their children’s healthy physical, emotional and social development.
