Improvement in advertising

Publication YearIssue Date 

Editor, the Gauntlet,

I would like to thank the Gauntlet for the improvement in the quality of advertisements being run in our campus paper. Sexist advertising is a serious issue, and I am pleased that the Gauntlet has taken steps to reduce this kind of objectification on campus.

I would also like to thank those women who have raised our awareness on this issue, and resolved to see an end to sexist advertising at the University of Calgary. Without pressure for change, sexism is only continued.

Although improvements have been made, this issue is far from gone. I encourage you all to question and challenge sexist advertising both on campus and in our community.
