http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/edwardstown/sports-...

The ad featured in the above provided weblink focuses on a scantly clad woman in a bikini and is strongly sexist and offensive in nature by advertising something (in this case- membership of a local cricket club) which has no relation whatsoever to the image used. The ad therefore demonstrates a blatant display of sexual objectification.
