Headteacher Jane Lunnon: Love Island ‘not doing much for feminism’

The debate around Judge Kavanaugh’s alleged behaviour has sparked a wider discussion in schools across the United States and beyond: when should adults be held accountable for actions when they were younger?

What about issues like consent, sexual assault allegations and the consequences they might have?

Added to that, there is the pressure on young women to “conform and look beautiful, otherwise you are not worthy of being loved”.

The head of a London girls’ school, says that this is a message given out by the hit reality TV show Love Island.
