Happ E. SexTalk Mission:
To build, encourage and promote a sense of sexual empowerment among teen and young adult women in a society where hypersexualization and objectification of female bodies – especially among women of color - thrive in the media and determine societal beliefs about how these bodies are to be viewed, displayed and treated.
Happ E. SexTalk believes that women have the right and ability to control their own sexuality, bodies and sexual pleasure and every individual should be given the knowledge, resources and skills needed to make informed decisions about their sexuality. One of Happ E. SexTalk’s main values is that through discussion and critical analysis of the negative messages, sexism, double standards, and hypersexualized images of female sexuality in the media, skills that are essential for creating and/or increasing the sense of sexual empowerment, body confidence and self-esteem are obtained among the teen and young adult females we serve.
