Another complaint has been upheld by Ad Standards against a store which objectifies and degrades women in their advertising. Honey Birdette consistently ignores the complaints and our children continue to suffer the consequences.
"The inadequacy and impotency of Ad Standards is extremely apparent," commented Wendy Francis, Director of the Australian Christian Lobby's Centre for Human Dignity.
"Ad Standards is ineffective. They continue to rule against this business, the business just ignores the complaints, and Ad Standards only response is to "...continue to work with the relevant authorities regarding this issue of non-compliance."
"This response is unacceptable when our young children are the ones being unnecessarily exposed to sexualised and degrading images of women in public places." Mrs Francis said.
