My idea for social action and community media television
production is based around underage sex. This is because I
believe this is most talked about at the moment and there is a lot
of concern about lowering the legal age of sex to 13, this is
mostly aimed at females because females are more pressured
into sex at a young age.
I want my campaign to show girls the dangers of sex and make
them aware the responsibilities that comes with it and also I
want people to be made aware that the legal age shouldn’t be
lowered because older men can think its then ok to sleep with a
13 year old.
• People might just ignore it because its been
spoke about before
• The media don’t help by publishing things in
magazines or in newspapers or on TV.
• There's things in the media about rape a lot
and underage sex
• People will engage and try and do something
• I have easy access to the audience because
people will be interested and also because
women have young children and they
wouldn’t want the age to be lowered
