Little girls say 'f***' for feminism

I like the premise behind the advert, because it juxtaposes a supposed social faux pas with the fact that women are still not treated equally to men. But it doesn't really sit well with me - it's the type of sensationalism that organisations stoop to to attract attention to their campaigns - like PETA's naked vegan celebrity adverts.
The problem I have is that organisations like this have no choice but to do something shocking and outrageous to attempt to bring something serious into the spotlight, when people like those in the entertainment industry need only to perform raunchily on stage, or rudely and childishly interrupt a Grammy Award winner's acceptance speech, or perform on stage in a swirl of demons.
Doesn't it all seem a little backwards to you? We should really focus our attention on making the world better, not on people who earn more than everyone reading this post combined, and then some.
