Spark Summit Q’s

The Spark Summit hosted experts on body image and girlhood, who fielded some complex questions and came up with some great answers.

Q1: Brooklyn, NY: What do you have to say about sports, for example, competitive cheerleading, which are broadly feminized and ALWAYS over-sexualized by media?

Q2: From Wellesley, MA: Have any of you brought your research results to media industry producers in hopes of affecting positive change in media images?

Q3: From NOW, NYC: Has anyone done any research on the relationship between sexualized images of women and violence against women?

Q4: From Alabama: How do we address the female athletes and actors/celebrities who make the choice/say “yes” to being sexualized in photo shoots, etc? Can educational efforts be targeted to the subject?

Q5: From San Francisco, CA: Have there been any studies on the relationship between early sexualization of girls and the trend of homo-erotic images and teen girls kissing girls primarily for the pleasure of boys?

The answers were interesting, visit the Spark Summit website to read them.
