#ThisOppressesWomen Stickers Going Global

 Over the past few days, the stickers created by National Women's Liberation and Redstockings have been covered by reporters in the U.K., India and the U.S.

We are sick of being bombarded with advertisements that depict women only as sexual objects.That use our bodies to sell products. That embolden men to disrespect us. That tell us we are not worthy unless we conform to unrealistic, sexist, racist and unhealthy beauty standards.

Help make this go viral. If you see a sexist ad photograph it and put it out with the hashtag #THISOPPRESSESWOMEN. Do the same if you spot the stickers on any ads.
