We’ve Come A Long Way. Sexist Ads From The Past That Will Make You Cringe

Although sexism still exists, it’s less overt and in your face. That doesn’t make it better, but at least society has evolved. For proof, just look at these ads from yesteryear. Imagine Van Heusen selling ties today with the slogan “Show Her It’s a Man’s World” and showing a woman kneeling next to her husband/boyfriend in bed.

Or what if Crock-Pot sold their slow cookers with the tagline, “Enjoy your time out of the bedroom.” Yeesh.

Some of these images are laughable, some might say quaint. Others may leave you shocked. All in all, they’re a testament to how far we’ve come as a society in our treatment of women. Let’s continue improving!

If these ads made you laugh or shocked you, share this post with friends and get their reaction.
