It's that time of year again, already! As Christmas approaches, retailers are kicking it up a notch competing for your business, and Collective Shout releases our annual blacklist of corporate offenders who have sexualised girls and objectified women throughout the year.

You can speak with your wallet and show these companies that sexually exploiting women and girls is bad for business.

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.
