Have you noticed that children seem to be growing up too fast? That even your younger children are more conscious about their looks and bodies? That they feel pressure to look thin, hot and sexy? That they are being exposed to sexualised images and messages you would like to protect them from?
Melinda Tankard Reist is an author, speaker, media commentator, blogger and advocate for women and girls.
Melinda is named in the Who’s Who of Australian Women and the World Who’s Who of Women. She has also been named by the Sydney Morning Herald as one of Australia’s top 5 creative thinkers.
Melinda will take us on a visual ‘tour’ of almost 200 images from popular culture and will explore the way these messages shape and mould young women’s ideas of themselves, their bodies, and their relationships. Her presentation will provide strategies to help girls rise above the airheaded cult of celebrity, fashion and outward appearance and discover their true value and worth.
