Every once in a while, either me or some other female that I know mourns the fact that we are ill treated. I dont know about other females, but I am absolutely sure that I would not want me to be a man. I mean, in this day and age, being a woman is something that is so wonderful. I can live the life I choose, marry – unmarry …. but I am so free. Plus I get a huge kick from the fact that I can earn my keep, drive, pursue a hobby and give birth to kids. That makes me feel strong and superior.
But to women who still doubt the fact that we truly have improved a lot I offer these ads ….
These ads are not too old – they are just ads from the 50s and 60s, but we have evolved. If any ad agency created these today, it would be out of business! We women are the biggest shoppers, and we drive market trends. We would boycott the product and the agency too.
Now are we doormats or prey to be hunted?
Talking about kinky, here is another
It seems that men thought that they were masters whereas their spouses were slaves … or perhaps men and women thought that way
I dont think I would buy that darn Kenwood Chef ever! And I love to cook!! Think of the ladies who dont like to cook, they would boo it out of the market!! On this point, I hate the Prestige ad too – Jo Biwi Se Kare Pyaar …. my way of thinking says, darn, if he loves his wife, why doesnt he pitch in with making dinner twice a week at least?
See how popular perceptions have changed through time? We have come a long way baby! We arent where we want us to be but we are getting there!
Talking about ads in the 50’s and 60’s, here are a few that are so idiotic that one can only shake one’s head and wonder
The world has truly changed. Thank God its 2010, not 1960!
