Thankfully, a lot has changed for women over the past 60+ years. If you’re a female, we’re willing to bet your mom never gave you sexist advice like, “Let him tell you his troubles; yours will seem trivial in comparison.” You probably make just as much, if not more money than your partner does, and no one’s asked you to wear pink underwear with ruffles since that one Easter Sunday when you were 3 years old.
So what's the most sexist dating advice you've ever received? Growing up as a female in the 21st century, you aren’t exposed to textbooks or magazines with messages like the ones you’re about to encounter in these vintage sexist ads. Even though this bygone mentality isn’t part of our daily lives now, TV, literature, movies, and long talks with our great grandmothers have taught us it wasn’t very long ago that a woman’s place was in the kitchen or leaning over an ironing board, and women still face inequalities in the workplace, and other fields, today.
These unbelievably sexist ads will either make you laugh hysterically or get your blood boiling. And the most ridiculous part of it all?! They’re all real advertisements, articles, or quotes from vintage ads that ran from the 1930s-1950s. So go ahead and check out the way things used to be, cast your votes for the most ridiculous and offensive relationship advice quotes, and tell your boyfriend to shove it when he asks you to make him a sandwich.
