Advertising has a long history of objectifying women. Now, one powerful female ad exec is fighting back.
Madonna Badger’s new campaign, #WomenNotObjects, is making big some waves.
It started when Badger, who heads up the advertising firm Badger & Winters, anonymously released a video on YouTube on January 11. The video begins with the results of simple Google search: “Objectification of women.”
The results turned up ads with troubling portrayals of women. The clip, which is two-and-a-half-minutes, features women critiquing the ads by mocking what the images are suggesting.
The aim of the video is to start a discussion using the #WomenNotObjects hashtag.
