Creative idea

We could just make another campaign against sexism. Instead we took over a symbol of Polish sexism and ended it. We bought the oldest, iconic Polish porn magazine “Your Weekend” to close it. But first we published its very last issue in history. Instead of the usual porn content, it focused on issues of sexism, misogyny, gender portrayal and equality. “The Last Ever Issue” proved that even though press is becoming less relevant, it is still possible to harness the power of the medium in an impactful way.
