Where Do You Put Your Stickers?

Some riot grrrls cover cutesy bathroom signs with Visit Our Power Room stickers.

One woman uses This Insults Women stickers for the bulletin board at work, another sticks them on Maxim magazines.

I want to know how you use the stickers. Send your pictures, stories, and ideas. I'll post them on this page so we can inspire other girls. And I'll give you 10 free stickers!

"Bought some of your stickers and love them. Hope you don't mind I made some of my own via copymachine so I could make some larger ones of your version. Wanted to send you some pictures for your gallery though!"

"I live in Seattle Washington in a young "urban" club area and all the posters around here for shows and drunken theme nights at bars are covered with totally sexist images of women, not to mention there are plenty of American Apparel stores around here with all of their ridiculous ads."

"I live in New York City and whenever I see a poster on the subway that depicts women or girls as objects, which is unfortunately often, I stick a "This Insults Women" sticker on it... and in an attempt to include the sometimes-too-quiet, but fabulous feminist men out there, I add a 'This Insults Everyone' sticker next to it.

Come on New York City... join me! Lets plaster the subway with 'This Insults' stickers! Lets change the face of advertising!"

I used Defend Yourself and My Body is Mine stickers to reinforce a sign that was posted on a telephone pole. The sign was put up by a woman who was grabbed from behind by a strange man and wanted to warn others about her experience.

This Insults Woman Sticker on an American Apparel Ad

An American Apparel ad on a bus bench with a This Insults Women sticker on it.

American Apparel markets itself as "socially conscious." But all I see are objectifying ads, anti-union management, and a sexist CEO.
