Dear Friends,

KFC sexist slap adKentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) is still running a TV ad that shows a woman slapping a man across the face. We can’t imagine them running an ad like this with the genders reversed. Can you?

This gender biased ad has triggered an international outcry. Persons from 28 countries have signed a petition condemning the KFC ads for promoting “dangerous stereotypes.” Facebook comments say KFC is “sexist.”

A major research compilation shows female-perpetrated partner violence is more widespread than male-perpetrated violence – 28.3% vs. 21.6%: http://domesticviolenceresearch.org/

Download this flyer, visit your local KFC restaurant, and share the flyer and your concerns with the manager. Ask them to contact the corporate office on your behalf. Then, take a photo of the restaurant. Send it with details (location, manager’s response, etc.) to tstoddard@saveservices.org.
