Alliance members are invited to network with fellow colleagues and hear from renowned expert Maree Crabbe on the issues of pornography, sexualisation and their impact on girls today. The event will be kindly hosted by Ivanhoe Girls’ Grammar School.

Pornography, young people and sexuality today

Over the past decade or so, pornography has become both more mainstream and more hardcore. For young people growing up in this era of ever-new and accessible technology, it is almost impossible to avoid exposure to pornography. Consumption – particularly for young men – has become normalised, with significant consequences for young women. The ways young people understand and experience gender and sex are being influenced by what they – or their partners or peers – observe in porn, with serious implications for their capacity to negotiate free and full consent, for mutual respect, for sexual health, and for gender equality.

Addressing pornography’s influence is a challenging task, but ignoring it is no longer an option. Porn isn’t going to go away. Schools can play a critical role in supporting girls to navigate relationships and sexuality that are respectful, safe and fully consenting in an age of pornography.
