Sexualisation of Children

An investigation into the sexualisation of young children is underway in WA after the State Parliament ordered the Children’s commissioner to tackle the emerging problem, reported the West Australian on 27 Oct 2012. (Watchdog to toughen protection for Kids, by Daniel Emerson). Laws governing billboards, the use of minors in advertising will be scrutinised. Ms Scott has to report in January to the Parliamentary Committee with recommendations. She will be focusing on the Criminal Code. 

 In March 2012 the Hon Nick Goiran, who has been advocating for an inquiry, moved a motion on the sexualisation of children in the legislative council. For the West Australian story click here.

Meanwhile the Australian Christian Lobby has launched a renewed national campaign to make outdoor advertising G rated.  ACL spokeswoman Wendy Francis said “we must protect our children from forming unhealthy attitudes toward women and sex.”

The ACL also reports on a speech by Tasmanian Labor Senator Helen Polley on the importance of addressing the sexualisation of children through highly sexualised advertising.
