The Sexualization of Girls
People have always talked about how kids grow up faster today than when they were kids. And, to look at some of the girls today, who could deny it? Girls and young women today are often portrayed as grown up women in little bodies. Sexualized images of young females are every where from television shows to print ads to Bratz dolls. So what message is this sending to our daughters, granddaughters and nieces? And how does it influence self-image and interpersonal relationships? Join us on Monday for a discussion on the sexualization of girls. Because this is an archived edition, we will not be taking calls.
