Oil on Canvas
In 2013 Victoria’s Secret was accused of sexualizing teens when their ad campaign for their PINK line presented underwear with slogans like “call me,” “wild”, and “feeling lucky.” At the time the CFO said the line of lingerie allowed 15 or 16 year old girls to feel older. Eventually they removed the items and said the campaign was meant for women in college. I’ve read that the line of clothing is in decline, but you’d never know it by looking at the kids walking the halls of our middle school. How about a line of clothing that encourages young girls to realize they’re more than a flirty slogan?
