A WOMEN’S campaign group want posters advertising a CBD entertainment venue removed, claiming it aligns women with meat.
Collective Shout has received numerous complaints since November about the posters advertising Schnitz ‘n’ Tits.
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.
The Para Hills West Soccer Club in Adelaide seems to have missed the memo.
With a new focus on objectification of women, abuse, violence, sexism and misogyny, Para Hills West decides not only to host a ‘Men’s Night’ fundraiser – but advertise it at the club for all the junior boys to see.
Para Hills West is making sure boys learn early about what women are good for. It seems to have ignored amateur soccer’s own code of conduct.
This poster is on display at the club in full view of junior playersRead more
Doughnut Time joins a growing number of companies requiring young staff members to wear uniforms with sexually suggestive slogans and imagery. We have long raised questions about this exploitation of young female staff and invitation for sexual harassment.
Collective Shout's National Director of Operations Coralie Alison was quoted in The Age over uniforms for female staff with strategically placed doughnuts.Read more
