Christian backs call for restrictions on music videos

The End Violence Against Women Coalition says rap videos in particular tend to present women as sex objects.

Speaking to Premier the Christian director of Media Watch UK, Vivienne Pattison said: "Sexist content and similar is more subtle and harder to pick up.

"I think it will be interesting to see where we go with the BBFC with this one.

"I agree, I don't think it should be there, and I will support them

"I hope this is something we can get rid of."

Sarah Green, from the End Violence Against Women Coalition said: "Some forms of media, such as television and film, are well regulated and our society accepts and supports this.

"Other forms like music videos are getting away with very little scrutiny and as such seem to be competing for who can most degrade and insult women.

"If the 'creative' people who make them won't stop this, regulators should rein them in and implement age ratings. More than 18,000 people have signed a petition calling for this."
