Stop the sexist and degrading advertisements by Axe sign now

Unilever Inc. is the company responsible for flooding our televisions, billboards, and magazines with advertisements that are offensive, sexist, and degrading against women; all so they can sell Axe- a personal care product for men that claims to "give guys the edge in the mating game". Its advertisements constantly portray woman in a sexual and submissive light. One of their newer products, a body spray called Dark Temptation, is featured in a commercial where the man using the products turns into a chocolate man. Throughout the commercial there are women biting his bum, licking his neck, and clawing at windows to get to him. Many other commercials feature women scantily clad that can't resist a man wearing an axe product. These commercials not only debase women but it presents the falsehood that all women have an inner animal just waiting to get out. It send a negative message to the younger generations that all you need is this product and women will sleep with you. The present women in a negative light that the only thing on our mind is sex. This gives men and younger children the wrong impression and the sense it's okay to objectify women. In Colombia, for instance, a female Axe Patrol visits bars and clubs, frisking guys and applying body spray.These small examples are more than enough to outrage today's modern woman, but what makes this worse is that Unilever Inc. is the company that also owns Dove. Dove is personal product geared towards women who's main sale's pitch is female empowerment and that one should love their body despite the shape and size. This is completely hypocritical and two faced. They state that the company's mission is "...to make cleanliness commonplace; to lessen work for women; to foster health and contribute to personal attractiveness, that life may be more enjoyable and rewarding for the people who use our products...". This statement itself is extremely sexist and backwards. It is time to take stand and demand that these advertisements can be pulled. There must be other ways to sell their product instead of using women as submissive and objectified pieces of meat that will convince a teenager if they use their product hot girls will be under his spell and unable to control themselves. It is time to fight that battle that so many women before us did. Together we are strong and we can send a message that we will not tolerate it anymore.

    To the creators, producers, actors, and viewers of these and all other sexist and objectifying advertisements - would you want your children being exploited in this way? Can you think of absolutely no other way to market your product? And how can you run

    I agree with this statement.... I am doing an essay on whether women are truly viewed as equals to men in the eyes of todays society and I would love to hear some input from you.

    Everytime I view one of these commercials (especially with my boyfriend) it leaves me with a very uncomfortable feeling. Not only is this horribly degrading but it gives men the impression that women are actually supposed to be this "way" (model pretty, h

    The hypocrisy is as disgraceful as the Axe ads themselves. I'm spreading this news throughout all my social networks. Shame on you! Don't you people have mothers, wives, sisters, or daughters?
  • 20 March 201574. Erika Bauer
    These commercials are extremely insulting, offensive, degrading, and encourage men to view women as nothing more than unthinking, unfeeling sex objects intended for their pleasure only. It's DISGUSTING! How does this help society?? You can sell a product
