Compelling Video Exposes The Harm Of Objectifying Women [Must Watch]

The #WomenNotObjects campaign wants advertisers to know that consumers are fed up with how females are portrayed in the media.


You may not personally know the woman on the television screen, but if your beloved sister, mother or cousin were in her place, would it change the way you viewed the advertisement being broadcasted?

A powerful new campaign is asking just this, more or less, by exposing just how terrifying it is for women to continually be the focus of objectification in the media.

The pressure to be ‘model thin’ and have airbrushed looks has caused a dizzying amount of women in the U.S. (75%, to be precise) to develop some form of eating disorder.

If they’re not obsessed with achieving a thigh gap, they’re likely attempting to plump their lips to Kylie Jenner standard. But, Women Not Objects argues, enough is enough. 

Young girls and mature women are going to extreme lengths to try and achieve nearly impossible standards of beauty portrayed by the media. In effect, the female collective is being harmed in more ways than one.

“Girls are growing up thinking that how they look is more important than how they feel, or who they are and what they can do,” relays the video.

Women – and men – are more than their physical appearance. However, society’s mentality concerning this issue is not likely to change until content shared by the media is revised, as well.

Truly, when the cultural “ideal” is unattainable, everyone fails.

  1. Rather weak overall. I suppose we should stop objectifying women and etherealize them instead? What feminists really want is to abolish gender altogether, to mass produce humans in test tubes and forbid heterosexual procreation. Judging by the fat assess in almost every city in the Western hemisphere, it appears the feminists will get their way. I see teenage girls chomping away at McDonald’s all the time. It’s their saggy horsebutts that can’t compete in the dating arena with a model who actually exercises and has a weight trainer. It would be better if instead of some nebulous campaign overseen by burly women in mohawks with a deep loathing of the First Amendment to keep “aspirational models” off of ads, they put all their resources into getting women to stop eating fast food and exercise more. So typical of a feminist to knee-jerk prohibit something than actually treat the core issue of nutrition and exercise.
    So glad the feminists struggled to get the vote, it’s made the world such a better place.

    • i agree with you heavily and its all because people are ignorant and don’t care most think ignore it and it will go away, but thats what gave them power their power we see now and the war has just start 3 years to late. two out of the three most famous ones on the news are almost gone now but its still teaching in in choose with a blunt lies in most of its

  2. It is not not just women, men to are elevating outward appearances to dangerous levels, i’m speaking here of social status/appearance as well, the above is only one facet of the underlying issue, which is!?
    We are so out-of-touch with our true self, we quite simply have identified with the “tools” we have, or don’t have or simply don’t like the look of. We are all dealt a “hand” so to speak and to try and change that “hand” is to try run away from yourself, and in turn escape LIFE! LIFE created us, Escape LIFE!? Imagine the consequences of such a pastime, some of which now are evidently playing out!

  3. If you want to stop this then educate your friends and families. The main reason that men and women objectifying themselves is because the parents gave them too much freedom. This issue is what happens when parents would not control their kids, whether they can’t or wouldn’t is the same. Many teens hang out with people who have a bad influence, or those who have a bad mindset.
