This is a great victory -- and no-one feels its impact more keenly than Ghada, the flight attendant who created a petition on Change.org asking the ASA to ban the offensive advert.
More than 11,000 people joined you in signing Ghada’s petition -- Ryanair have frequently been guilty of sexist advertising in the past, but after today they know they can’t get away with objectifying their female staff to sell their services.
The victory is an extraordinary example of people power -- and a testament to the power of anyone, anywhere to start, join and win campaigns about issues they care about.
If you’re aware of something that’s discriminatory, unfair or just plain wrong, remember that you can always start a campaign on Change.org
