“As a woman I am constantly under threat just because of the gender I was born into. I don’t want a life for my nieces where they’re afraid for their safety just because they’re a girl. I want them to have more, know more and be more.”
what is the idea we are moving forward with?
targeting fashion brands that objectify and depict women as passive in their advertising.
eg –gucci / prada [all have lounging females]
how can we do it?
a sticker with the word ‘agency’ is placed over advert in place of the logo
where does it need to take place?
bus shelter adverts
are there any legal implications to the activity?
can the sticker be removed or are we defacing property
here’s a record of the discussion generated by the think tank during the 30 minute brainstorming session.
the tiny revolution rebels found the perfect billboard in the in the centre of Perth’s shopping district.
the tiny revolutions rebels ‘adjusted’ the advertisement and it stayed in place for many, many, weeks.
