 Oz Girls as Young as Nine Getting Their Legs Waxed
Nine year old girls in Australia are being encouraged by their parents to undergo hair removal treatments.

While criticizing the practice, NSW Community Services Minister Linda Burney said that mothers should not force their daughters to mature too quickly, reports News.com.au.

"Most people would be pretty aghast that girls as young as nine would feel that they need to have their legs waxed," Burney said.

She added: "It raises the broader issue of children growing up too quickly and brings up the issue of sexualisation of children.

"Children should be allowed to be children and not feel they need to emulate what they see in gossip magazines and the advertising industry."
