Sexism in Advertising--What Do You Think? GOOD or BAD?

While this advertisement positively provides support and value to the work women accomplish in the home, it also furthers gender stereotypes by implying that women's sole worth is to raise children and by quantifying that worth at $43,461.


  1. Wow. I understand the positive message in this, but it always those hidden meanings that I am so sick and tired of seeing. Women are not just possessions. What I do not understand is why advertisers do this.

  2. Could yoke it larger so i could see what is said on the advertisment, because I can't make an educated opinion without knowing the facts :(

  3. Wonderful article, thanks for putting this together! This is obviously one great post. Thanks for the valuable information and insights you have so provided here.
