Dr. Linda was invited by the Home Secretary to conduct an independent review on the impact of the sexualisation of young girls on violence against women.

"I genuinely welcomed the opportunity to take a critical look at this area. As both as a psychologist and as a mother, I was very aware that this was a topic that was gaining increasing amounts of attention both in academic literature and the popular press. Throughout the course of the review, what has become very apparent is that sexualisation is a multi-factorial issue and therefore needs to be approached from a range of perspectives, taking into account not only the emotional and cognitive development of children but also the influence of family, culture and society as a whole".
