Press Release: July 9, 2013 from the Parents Television Council. New PTC research finds teen girls the target of sexual exploitation on TV.  

Excerpt: New research from the Parents Television Council’s 4 Every Girl Campaign found that underage female characters on primetime broadcast television are more likely to be presented in sexually exploitative scenes than adult women, and the appearance of underage female characters in a sexually exploitative scene increased the probability that the scene would be presented as humorous. The study, TV’s Newest Target: Teen Sexual Exploitation includes…only scripted original programs that aired during primetime on broadcast television. Collectively, PTC analysts viewed a total of 238 episodes for a total of 194.5 hours of programming. Five types of sexually exploitative content served as the primary focus of the study. They included: sexual violence, sexual harassment, prostitution, sex trafficking, stripping, and pornography.
