Are Today's Ads More Sexist Than They Were 40 Years Ago?
Fascinating how only 50 years ago, women were blatantly belittled in advertising like this. Now we are just as belittle...only on a level we take part in.

A forgotten profession: In the days before alarm clocks were widely affordable, people like Mary Smith of Brenton Street were employed to rouse sleeping people in the early hours of the morning. They were commonly known as ‘knocker-ups’ or ‘knocker-uppers’. Mrs. Smith was paid sixpence a week to shoot dried peas at market workers’ windows in Limehouse Fields, London.
