Consuming Kids: The Sexualization of Children and Other Commercial Calamities

More than 200 people attended CCFC’s sixth summit, which kicked off with the presentation of the Fred Rogers’ Integrity Award to Morgan Spurlock, director and star of the acclaimed film Super Size Me.  The following day Jean Kilbourne and Diane Levin gave the opening keynote presentation based on their new book, So Sexy, So Soon.   Other highlights included a hilarious presentation from costumed Australian advocate Julie Gale, a sobering look at the correlation between children’s wellbeing and how much nations regulate marketing, and a host of workshops and breakoutessions where participants developed strategies for limiting marketers’ access to kids.
