A Youtube video reveals how women are still objectified. The #WomenNotObjects projects suffessfully puts their point across, and it's awe-inspiring.
Objectifying women is a sad reality that has been going on for years and sadly enough it exists till date. Even a sandwich advertisement is not untouched by this. A video surfaced on YouTube where women stressed on the fact that they are not an object of one's amusement i.e. #WomenNotObjects Project focuses on delivering this message. In the video, several women hold up a placard displaying the questionable advertisement and state a rather sarcastic comment that hits exactly where it hurts.
The video begins with someone googling "objectification of women" and the resulting image results were astonishingly disappointing. After a quick glance through the images, the next frame shows a girl holding a Burking King Ad. Well, Burger King seems to be flaunting the petty fact that their delicious sandwiches deserve a 'blowjobs'. The woman in the video sarcastically comments saying, "I love giving blowjobs to sandwiches."
No one likes sacrificing their dignity for a drink! But that's what the next poster of 'Skyy Vodka' reveals where a barely-clothed woman is lying down with a man standing over her waiting to pour her that drink. That's not all folks! In order to sell a post-it note, they show how women don't mind sleeping with a guy who doesn't even know their name and sticks a post-it on her forehead along with her name. Why couldn't they show a different use for it?
The video goes on with several other examples from high-end companies like Balmain to Tom Ford while the controversy continues. The next part of this daunting clip goes on to show how a woman places a men's perfume in front of their naked vagina, something that has nothing to do with women or their lady parts. Today these upcoming companies advertise clothes, food, and even drinks using a lot of cleavages and exposed butts and their question to them is why?
