Welcome to Child Eyes
… campaigning to protect children from sexualisation and commercialisation
Every day children are confronted with sexual images. Shop windows and displays surround children with a wallpaper of ‘sex sells’ media. The Sun, Daily Star and the Sport regularly feature front pages showing semi-naked women in provocative poses. Lads’ mags front covers regularly feature pictures of topless women with the briefest modesty bars. Tabloid headlines shout about sex, violence or both, often next to their pictures of semi-naked, sexualised women or ‘girls’. Women’s magazines consistently have sensationalised and often titillating rape and child abuse stories on their front covers. Other magazines repeatedly body shame women.
These products are frequently displayed at children’s eye level, often right next to the comics and sweets that children are drawn to, using bright colours and easy to read words which catch children’s attention.
Child Eyes is campaigning to stop sexualised, sexist and damaging images being displayed at child height in shops and public spaces. Grown ups can choose whether to access adult content…let’s protect children until they are old enough to make their own decisions.
If you’d like to see what children see when they are out and about in public spaces, the video below demonstrates the sheer abundance of sexual images displayed at child height. This video was compiled from some of the hundreds of pictures of local shops and supermarkets that our supporters have sent us.
Please watch, share and join our campaign to protect children from sexualisation and commercialisation.
Start your own Child Eyes campaign!
We have campaigns running in many towns so far. These campaigns were all started by parents who got fed up of repeatedly seeing porn/sexual imagery in public. We want every town in the U.K. to be family friendly and you can help to make that happen, just join the Child Eyes movement!
We petitioned the government to stop retailers displaying porn around children
