Protection of the Family | Part III

Part III: “Preventing the Sexualization of Children” Protection of the Family UN Side Event, Geneva, September 15, 2014


  • Annie Franklin, Director of UN Activities of Family Watch International, Spokesperson for the UN Family Rights Caucus.

Description of Event:

Watch a short but powerful documentary showing how children have become the victims of adult pornography, the impact of internet porn on children, and how porn drives violence and sexual crimes against women and children.  Find out about sexuality education programs that go too far by promoting sexual rights at the expense of the sexual health of children.  Learn about the problems associated with creating a right to sexuality education without defining it or involving parents.  Join in the discussions on how we can prevent the premature sexualization of children and on the implications for upcoming negotiations on children’s issues.
