Letterman “Jokes” About Palin’s Daughter
Offender: David Letterman on “Late Show with David Letterman”
The sexualization of girls and women in the media is reaching new lows these days — it is exploitative and has a negative effect on how all women and girls are perceived and how they view themselves.
