Media blamed for 'sexualisation' of young girls


The media is to blame for the sexualisation of young girls, according to a new report.

The report by Dr Linda Papadopoulos was commissioned by the Home Office as part of its strategy for tackling violence against women and girls.

A group of 15- and 16-year-old girls from Firth Park Community Arts College in Sheffield spoke to the BBC about body image and peer pressure.
