Remove a Pornographic Ad from a Major Intersection

While driving her eldest daughter Lucia home from her first piano lesson one afternoon, Anna stops at a red light on the busy intersection of Wellington Street and Alexandra Parade in Fitzroy, Melbourne.

As the car stands stationary, Anna notices Lucia quietly observing something outside her window. Following her gaze Anna sees, to her utter dismay, a large advertisement on the corner building, depicting a pornographic scene in which two women, clad in nothing but scanty black lingerie are sexually positioned

That is when Anna decided something had to be done so that her young daughter would not have to be exposed to such images which can only affect her self-esteem and sense of womanhood for the worse.

Preserving a child’s innocence and freedom from degrading depictions of ‘what it is to be a woman’ is crucially important; especially at an age where they have not yet developed a maturity of judgement which allows them to reject this kind of message.

Advertisements like this do nothing to help the cause of instilling good values like self-esteem, confidence and dignity in children; in fact they actively hinder it.

Signing this petition will help to improve the societal landscape which should support parents in their task of building up their children’s sense, as well as all women’s sense, of self-dignity and worth.
