While I was going to now focus on feminist movements, I felt it necessary after stumbling upon this ad to bring it to attention (run in Singapore):

This one advertisement manages to be sexist and racist all in one. The tagline “I swallow”- referring to sexual acts, as well as the product being a skin-whitening tool and using an Asian woman for its ad. The sexual objectification of this ad is horrific, making me wonder who the consumer is? I am aware skin lightening products are hugely popular in Asian countries, but what woman would be interested in a product using that tagline?
