Here's a photo-set of vintage advertisements. The nostalgia is fun, but there are a few ads that might catch your attention.
Like, say, this one. Phew, you might say, they sure don't make them like this anymore!
But how much has it really changed? I think some advertising may still be sexist toward women in that we are still often portrayed as nothing much more than sexual objects.
On the other hand, have you noticed that some ads have become sexist toward men instead? I can remember quite a few TV commercials that portray the husband as a bumbling goof that the wife has to bail out (or she is simply shown as smarter and more "normal"). Funny, that.
What's your opinion on today's advertisements? How far have they come? Is the sexism toward women still there? Maybe just more subtly? Share your examples!
