Rap lyrics, music videos, video games, advertisements and peer influences portraying women as nothing more than sexual toys whose only purpose is to gratify men lead young girls to take terrifying health risks in order to conform. Eating disorders come about as glorified images of super skinny, breast-implanted woman are used to promote everything from make-up, to fast food, to clothing.
Sexual promiscuity becomes the norm when teenagers hear sexually explicit lyrics that cheapen women to mere objects to be used and disposed of.
The resulting statistics on teen pregnancies, abortions, sexually transmitted diseases, mental illness, eating disorders, teen suicide and drug abuse are staggering.
The mainstream media’s solution? The HPV vaccine, female condoms, and public service announcements.
Rather than cracking down on those peddling the smut and filth to impressionable children; media corporations and “artists” continue to bring in enormous profits from the objectification of women, sexualization of young girls and promotion of violence against women.Sisters’ Sanctuary™
is here to support you. We know the lines of communication can get strained between teenage girls and their parents, teachers, mentors—all adults, really. We specialize in helping repair the relationships of Mom and Daughter, because we know that the only way to combat the influences of pop culture on young women is if you have a healthy relationship.
Through our many products & services we address the topics that are directly affecting today’s teenage girls: body image, eating disorders, nutrition, sexuality, healing from abuse, rejecting pop culture’s objectification of women and helping girls see their true divinity and purpose.
In our Sisters’ Sanctuary™ on site workshops we help teen girls to know how sacred they are and make positive goals for their futures, so that they can keep focused on the positive this world has to offer. We also specialize in training adults on how to get through to girls of the “Hip Hop Generation” . We understand the world she’s facing each day. We know where she is coming from. We can support you in seeing through the façade girls so often put up, to reach out to the sacred girl beneath and assist in guiding her safely to adulthood.
We offer parenting courses in the form of
eCoaching, and support for Groups and Individuals.
Sisters’ Sanctuary™ can give you the parenting skills and the encouragement you need to build a lasting relationship of love and respect between you and your teen daughter.
