            If you thought misogynist marketing ended with #MeToo, think again. Sexism is still rife in the advertising world where brands too-often rely on lazy, dated stereotypes or simplistic femvertising. In an industry largely dominated by men, half the population is being misrepresente...d - the half with 80% of the buying power - and often to disastrous consequence. Bringing together case studies, stories and new research from across the world, Jane Cunningham and Philippa Roberts propose a powerful solution: a Bechdel test for creatives and brands. It poses the questions: - Does the campaign show a diverse group of women? - Is the product fixing women who don't fit the ideal? - Are the women presented as passive or performative? An innovative framework to identify outdated stereotypes and avoid scandal, Brandsplaining helps brandscreate fresh, original content that connects with their female consumers. Every time.

            We are using up the planet at almost double the rate it can regenerate. To support our economies, we're told we must shop now like we've never shopped before. And whilst we can do it more responsibly, the scale of our consumption remains the biggest factor in the ruination of the... planet. Yet our reliance on stuff continues to grow.But what would our world look like if we stopped? Would civilisation collapse? Would the planet's ecology be reborn? What would happen to the way we think, make products, use time, express our individuality? Would life be better - or worse?Visiting places where economies have experienced temporary shut-downs, artisan producers, zero-consumption societies and bringing together a host of expert views, this is both a deeply reported thought-experiment, a history of our relationship with consumption, and a story about the future.Our private choices are putting the world in peril. The Day the World Stops Shopping is an essential exploration of who we are and what we use, and a vision of a more sustainable world.
