    Unilever - Making husbands and sons smell bad, making us and our daughters FEEL bad

    Sexism dovetails with hypocrisy

    Maybe I've watched too much madmen but I'm not shocked.

    I used to work for Unilever in my distant past. This doesn't surprise me at all.

    And the amount of money that went to the advertising agencies was obscene.

    I've seen one of these Dove School promos for girls recently.

    As the girls themselves pointed out: If we're supposed to love our bodies, why did the woman turn up to talk to us in full make-up, perfume and tight clothes?

    I still like the guy who sued Lynx because he didn't attract women when he used it!
