Within the world of advertising it is very common to see women being part of different campaigns. For decades the image of women has been used as a banner of sexuality to attract more and more attention from the public. However, the question that really should attract our attention at this time is: Are women really the perfect sexual objects for advertising?
The answer has come thanks to the project called #WomenNotObjects, an initiative that aims to denounce the violence that women receive within the world of advertising. The video made by this project has managed to show different cases of advertising where women are used in a sexist manner accompanied by offensive phrases such as: I like to sleep with men who do not even know my name, I love sacrificing my dignity for a drink these They are just some of them.
The campaign was created by publicist Maddona Badger, inspired by her three deceased daughters
