New anti-AIDS ad tells us to ‘Come Together’ (RUDE!) for safer sex, by showing… lots of sex 
This is a super-interesting ad! On one level, it’s a lot more diverse than your average TV sexy times. More of a range in terms of age, race, number of people involved, and type of sex. Big win.
On another level, most of the coded-hetero sex is shown like it’s happening, whereas a lot of the coded-homo sex is alluded to.
I can’t see this driving many more people to use condoms (notoriously difficult to do!) but still, happy it exists ^_^

Images of scantily clad women are used by advertisers to make products more attractive to men. This “sex sells” approach is increasingly employed to promote ethical causes, most prominently by the animal-rights organization PETA. Yet sexualized images can dehumanize women, leaving an unresolved paradox – is it effective to advertise an ethical cause using unethical means?

In two separate studies, showing people ads containing sexualized images of women made reduced their intention to support an ethical organization, compared to people viewing non-sexualised images of women.

When promoting ethical causes, organizations may benefit from using advertising strategies that do not dehumanize women.

When Sex Doesn’t Sell: Using Sexualized Images of Women Reduces Support for Ethical Campaigns

PETA - screwing over women and animals.

"Women, the study claims to have found, feel less attractive on Mondays, especially in the morning. Thus, as the release explains, “Monday becomes the day to encourage the beauty product consumer to get going and feel beautiful again, so marketing messages should focus on feeling smart, instant beauty/fashion fixes, and getting things planned and done. Concentrate media during prime vulnerability moments, aligning with content involving tips and tricks, instant beauty rescues, dressing for the success, getting organized for the week and empowering stories.”"

— This is fucking sick. Burn all corporate advertisers!

Meet 4 Kenyan Women Who Wish You Would Keep Your ‘Poverty Porn’ To Yourself

When asked what they would make a film about, the women of the Nyamonge neighborhood of Kisumu (Kenya) said, “Netball. We always see African women as sad and poor. We want to make a video about something we love.”

These women are multidimensional. Some own small businesses. Some farm, sell dried fish, make breakfast breads, sell fabric and scarves, or sing for a living. All of them are mothers and most are caregivers for orphans in their own home. They are leaders of water committees and microfinance groups. They also carry water on their heads for miles, live in one room homes with mud packed walls, and worry about paying their children’s school fees. Their ability is infinite and inspiring. Amongst all this, It’s practice four times a week and, at times, walking over four miles for tournaments. These ladies don’t mess around.

Boom.

Domestic violence campaign featuring men as the victims/survivors, done in a way that doesn’t rely on hyper-masculinity?
Kudos, police!

Kudos, police!

Newsflash: campaigns that target the perpetrators rather than the victims/survivors WORK FAR BETTER.
