We are constantly shown ads that are degrading to women in one way or another. You can’t really escape them- they’re on the subway, the bus, billboards, TV, magazines, etc. National Women’s Liberation has decided to take a cue from the ladies of yesteryear by using a sticker to make a statement.
The sticker, created by Redstockings in 1969, reads, “This oppresses women.” Members of the group have been placing it on ads around New York City. Here’s some of their work:

We love that these stickers slap some much-needed commentary onto these ads. For more about how the advertising industry creates toxic imagery, we suggest watching Killing Us Softly and Miss Representation.
