Ad showing woman's face with google search results saying, "women shouldn't...have rights...vote...work...box."

New ad campaign uses real Google search results to highlight sexism

Brought to us by UN Women, these ads are as brilliant as they are depressing as hell.

Ad showing woman's face with google search results saying, "women shouldn't...have rights...vote...work...box."

The campaign’s creator explains, “This campaign uses the world’s most popular search engine (Google) to show how gender inequality is a worldwide problem. The adverts show the results of genuine searches, highlighting popular opinions across the world wide web.”

Google results are likely to be slightly different in different countries, so you can play a fun sad game of replicating all the ads for yourself. According to the one I just did, for example, women also shouldn’t be in combat, be cops, or go to college. Good times.
