Media release: Collective Shout, Good on You and STOP THE TRAFFIK Criticise Just Group for Letting Customers Down
It’s 2016, and yet women’s bodies are still being used to sell everything from beer to burgers to organ donation. Are we ok with this? Caitlin from Collective Shout gives us her two cents.Read more

Update: Sign Petition to PETA
PETA is a not-for-profit organization that aims to establish and protect the rights of all animals. PETA's website states that it operates under these principles:
‘Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way.’
PETA’s self-proclaimed commitment to the ethical treatment of animals is in direct contrast with their sexually exploitative treatment of women in their advertising.
