The Adland Podcast ep 8: Kellie-Jay Keen "Woman" campaign creator on why it's so controversial.

Kellie-Jay, also known as Posie Parker, the founder of Standingforwomen speaks with Dabitch on this episode of Adland's podcast about the "Woman" billboard campaign that she has created which manages to get banned everywhere. Why is it so controversial?

The billboard that keeps getting banned. Who knew words were this powerful?

We also manage to discuss ads in general, opining on everything from Johnny Rotten selling butter to the most recent Libresse bodyform commercial with the animated wombs and then some. We speak about the Dove ads were the new type of mother includes the biological father, which got a lot of backlash. (Standingforwomen have a t-shirt for that too) and kvetch about Always removing the "female" symbol from their packaging as well as copywriters inventing new terms for women and how clunky that can sound. Also, we spoke about Heinz using Pornhub as a place to run their ads. In short, this may be the most advertising focussed podcast yet, and Kellie-Jay doesn't even work in advertising! So do tune in, and if you want to hear more from her, she has her own Youtube channel

I can't believe this has been up for at least two hours and not a single troll comment.
