Sexism in Advertising Campaign

sexism in advertising campaign special research report Photo by
This was a big year for women: The first serious female presidential candidate, the first predominately female state senate, the first female Top Chef. Yet the advertising world has not caught up to the advances of half our population and continues to use stereotypes and violence to prey on our most vile desires. Here are the worst of them--the trends that won't die despite our cultural outrage, and personal boredom. Read more Labels: Advertising , Sexism posted by Amy Stein at 3:33 PM   zs said...

an audience (viewers, readers or listeners) to purchase or take some action upon products, ideals, or services. It includes the name of a product or service and how that product or service could benefit the consumer, to persuade a target market to purchase or to consume that particular brand . These brands are usually paid for or identified through sponsors and viewed via various media.

Brut: Still Brutually Sexist | Melinda Tankard Reist
Good piece in The National Times today on ‘Lad’s Ads’, pointing out the raw sexism of the new Brut deodorant advertising campaign – a perfect case study in sexist advertising. Brut appears to be following in the footsteps of Unilever’s Lynx, which has turned objectification into an art form (all the while promoting Dove ‘real beauty’). Thanks Brut and Lynx for entrenching the notion that women are mindless objects for male sexual fantasies. Oh, and men? Perhaps find something else to spray yourselves with. These ads demean you too. ‘Lads’ ads’ are ironic, we are told. They are also brutally offensive. ... market research, surveys and trends
The history of a brilliant ad campaign at Duke's Perkins Library ...
I'm following a trail of goo, an unctuous path that flows from the farthest reaches of the geopolitical corporate grasp to the most personal and intimate of domestic spaces. The trail unfurls in a dark plume off the Louisiana coast, spawning an interconnected swirl of oil-drenched seabirds, fragile economies, vulnerable ecosystems and opulent boardrooms and winds in serpentine fashion directly into your home and into your bathroom medicine cabinet. This drifting route recently oozed its way to Perkins Library at Duke, where images from the archive of the John W. Hartman Center for Sales, Advertising and Marketing History ... market research, surveys and trends


Did you know that you are likely to be bombarded by over 1,500 adverts a day? Advertising is increasingly dominating every space. It has reached out from billboards, papers, magazines, television and radio into every area, from schools to sponsored concerts and art shows, into wage slips and even public toilets. Last year saw the world's first sponsored wedding. This is what Naomi Klein, author of No Logo , means by 'no space'. And it is irritating enough. But when you consider the economics of advertising it is truly sickening. In 1998 $197 billion--4 percent of the gross national product of the US--was spent on ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Mad Men | Herizons Magazine
Discussions about women and advertising have been reignited thanks to the level of unapologetic sexism portrayed in the award-winning drama Mad Men, a television series about a 1960s advertising agency. But who really was responsible for creating those damaging gender stereotypes in advertising? It’s easy to blame it on the mad men. The first season of the hit AMC TV series received 16 Emmy nominations and was the first basic-cable show to win the coveted award for best drama—plus, it won five others. A period piece depicting the dark side of the lives of senior executives in a New York advertising agency in 1960, ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Time to kick sexism out of advertising
For the past several months, advertisers have scrambled to include any possible mention of the beautiful game in their summer campaigns. With England now out of the World Cup, the glut of shoe-horned references to football in ads is likely to abate. Yet before we resume "advertising as normal" on our screens and in our streets, it's worth pausing to consider a trend within the industry that World Cup-related ad campaigns have thrown into stark relief: the deliberate and widespread use of sexist material in the name of selling a product. There's nothing particularly new about advertising that plays on gender ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Tales from the Coffeeshop: Life in The People's Islamic Republic of Akelistan
LEDRA STREET was being used by prostitutes looking for customers, revealed Nicosia Mayor Eleni Mavrou on Tuesday. There were times when as many as a dozen hookers were offering their services to passers-by in the historic Ledra Street area, a genuinely worried mayor said. Worse still, there was nothing the police could do to stop the women of easy virtue soliciting for business in the most frequented street of the old town. It was very difficult to arrest them because unless they were harassing a man for business, they were not breaking the law, a cop dealing with human trafficking said. But so what if a few tarts wonder Ledra ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

The White Ribbon Campaign was originally founded in Canada, following the 1989 massacre of 14 young female college students at Montreal´s L´Ecole Polytechnique, a handful of men recognized that as men, they have a responsibility to urge other men to speak out against men´s violence against women, as it could no longer be treated as merely a "Women´s Problem."   These men organized the White Ribbon Campaign to ask men to take the pledge, wear a small white ribbon as a symbol of men´s opposition to men´s violence against women, and enter into a dialogue about men´s violence ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

What the hell is up with the EVONY OFFENSIVE ad on youtube ...
Every other page refresh is this woman character with her breasts all out and profane. I'm truly offended and i can't freely watch videos now without having to avoid this image. Until they remove it, I will not be visiting youtube. I can't believe you would allow an ad like that to be posted for everyone to see. I'm shocked at the normalization of sexual images and it gets worse and worse. That is one of the most offensive images to have on this type of site i've seen. You're not even given a choice, it's just there. Someone one Utube needs to check ads before they ok them. ...
