Shout out against sexist ads

Remix magazine ads to change the statement and give women a voice.

Enough is enough! It feels like we can't open a magazine any more without being bombarded by misogynistic images of women. It's sexist, two-dimensional and plain UNFAIR.

Your challenge: change the message of these ads by giving a voice back to the women inside them. 

Here's how:

  1. Gather some examples of the worst offenders. You won't have to look hard to find magazines that are sexist as hell.
  2. Print off these speech bubbles and stick them on the page.
  3. Give agency to the women in each ad by giving her a voice. What would she say? Your words can be angry, funny or sarcastic.
  4. Leave the magazine where somebody will find it. They'll get the message that sexism is not on.
  5. Post a picture of your remixed image here.
