Sexism in Vintage Ads- Women in the Past Series

Que Horror!  When I saw these, I knew I just had to share.  What upsets me the most, is realizing that the young men of this time (of the ads) are the men who are now trying to justify having control over female reproductive rights.  This explains a whole lot.

Check out 30 sexist vintage ads.

This is one example of what I mean about the young men of that time:

I had to double check some of the ads to make.sure they were real! The domestic violence is definitely startling. It's sad to think that the women of the past had to battle with and be pressured by these ads. I'm interested to see how women responded to these back then.
