Lebanese Feminists Balk at Offensive Election Ad
On June 7th parliamentary elections will be held in Lebanon that will shape the country for the next four years. Too bad one party decided to piss off women with demeaning and overly sexified print and television ads that tells women to "look pretty and vote." The Feminist Collective calls Tayaar's bluff; they point out that the ad is being used to entice men rather than women; question the absence of women from the Lebanese parliament, Tayyar's own candidate lists, and the party's political platform; and tell them how their money would be better spent in ways that actually promote progressive changes that advance women's rights. Oh, and while they were at it, they created their own parody of the offensive ad. Smart is sexy, y'all.
