As I have said before, I feel like I was born in the wrong time, but in some perspectives I am very happy to live in the current time. Since the last century we have come a long way, for example in technology, research, emancipation etc. But the old-fashioned role division, misogynism, unknowingness and thoughts and beliefs of those time still become very clear in the advertisements of those days. Ads that would never be approved these days because they are misleading, racist or misogynistic.
I have collected some shocking vintage advertisements for you, that really were printed and used.
After all, it is perfectly fine to insult and lower women….
Thank god there is a way to be beautiful, because how could you be beautiful if you aren’t full figured… Here’s the solution, just gain weight!
Nothing better to give you children than 7up and Coca Cola!
And of course, smoking! If doctors do it…!
Could you imagine the stir if these ads were displayed these days?
