Stop the distribution of sexually explicit advertising material in our community

This petition had 519 supporters


I am calling on the City of Marion to revise council by-laws to prevent the distribution of sexually explicit advertisements within the council area - including privately owned car-parks and residents' letter boxes.

I have started this petition following an offensive advertisement for "Bikini Girls Massage" featuring images of barely-dressed women, which I found distributed to cars at my local shopping centre. I believe advertising of this sort contributes to the objectification of women, and normalises an unrealistic image of women and their sexuality. I find it offensive to myself, and believe it sends damaging messages to my young daughter. If you live, work or shop within the Marion Council, please sign this petition to show your support for restricting this kind of advertising.
