The advertising world has always reflected and inflated a mirror of society and its evolution. Since it is still Women’s Month, let’s take a look back at some of the adverts of the past that demonstrate just how far we have come since the days of sexist ads.
When the shoe doesn’t fit
Kellogg’s PEP tries to be cute…fails
Van Huesen Ties ad shows women as men’s servants
Ironing board ad
Tipalet ad sells delusion
Pitney-Bowes Postage meter’s advertorial asks sexist questions
T-shirt, backpack and cycling objectifies
Co-Le Sales Company takes the sexism cake
But the Pontiac Star Chief took it the next level of sexism
While it might seem we have come a long way, there is still so much work to be done to curb sexism, this Burger King and Ford India ad are perfect examples.
