Total tools are total tools

We have been receiving complaints against hardware store Total Tools since last year. 

We contacted them in December and this was their reply:

"Apologies if our artwork choice has offended you. We will certainly use your feedback in deciding future artwork for our catalogues."

On their blog they claim to encouraging their female franchise community. But objectifying and sexualising women in marketing and advertising doesn't make for a very welcoming work environment for women.

Here are some of their recent ads.
