Two Women Turn The Tables On Sexist Fashion Ads

It's sad to say, but at this point, it's hardly news when we see (yet another) fashion ad depicting hyper-sexualized women (or, worse, their disembodied parts). But, just because sexist images are depressingly status quo doesn't make them okay. A good litmus test? If you'd side-eye an ad showing a male model half-naked and supine, maybe that's not such a good look for us ladies, either.

Now, The Huffington Post reports that writers Holly Eagleson and Lauren Wade are throwing a light (or, some shade) on this routine objectification by re-making offensive fashion ads with male models in place of women. They took special aim at Terry Richardson's most notorious campaigns, and the charming American Apparel seen here.
