When we first started exploring the issue of early sexualization of girls, we never imagined it would lead to an Emmy! Please join us in congratulating Director/Cinematographer Derek Hallquist for his recent win at the 36th Annual New England Emmy Awards last week. Our work on sexualization, in partnership with the U.S. Attorney General’s Office in Vermont, inspired his award-winning Internet Crimes PSA.
Take a minute to watch the PSA and then, more importantly, explore our Girls in Society resources. You can read the latest research on sexualization, learn about promising approaches for responding and keep current on related news items. Our friends at the Vermont Center for Crime Victim Services have additional resources focused on assisting survivors.
Congratulations, Green River Pictures and thanks for raising awareness about this important issue!
(After you watch, please take a minute to tell us what you thought of the PSA message below!)
