45 Vintage Sexist Advertisements That Would Never Fly Today

Advertisers today are still printing and filming sexist ads, but early print advertisements were a lot more blatant, some of them downright offensive. I can’t believe this was acceptable and it makes me sick. Could you imagine what the reaction would be if any of these advertisements were put up today?

Some of these are just downright offensive, like the, “Is it always illegal to kill a woman?” Yes, yes it is! It’s amazing that when printing these advertisements that most people didn’t even bat an eye. It was the norm in the 1950s and 1960s, but times have definitely changed. Women can vote, they work outside of the home, and they don’t necessarily do all of the cleaning. We are slowly becoming a more equal society, but there are some areas that could still use some improving.
