How far we’ve come…

This came from my Politics of Journalism class at Claremont McKenna. I thought it was too ridiculous (and somewhat horrifying) not to pass on.

Even with all of the issues we experience today, it’s remarkable that this was once considered appropriate advertising. We have lots of grounds to go when it comes to rooting out sexism, but this is a good reminder that we’re at least on our way. With all of the retro revisionism occurring at the moment, this seems pretty timely.
