Body-shaming ads are being shamed.

Feminist groups have been sticker bombing sexist and misogynistic subway ads in New York with replicas of retro stickers that read “This Oppresses Women”. The stickers, distributed by National Women’s Liberation and Redstockings, a national feminist think-tank, were originally printed in 1969. These orgs are bringing them back to life to target the many, many Metro advertisements that use body-shaming language and airbrushed images of women’s bodies to promote breast augmentation surgeries and weight loss programs.
