The Link Between Sex Trafficking & Media Influence

Media Influence Education and Sex Trafficking Prevention are closely linked:

  • Oversexualization of models ages 8-17;
  • Violence against women in movies, TV and songs;
  • Glorification of pimps in pop culture;
  • Hypersexual singers and actresses who girls look up to as role models.
