Vintage Ladies Home Journal Ad Shows Some Interesting Stereotypes

Women and men respond differently to everything, so the sexes should have their own magazines.

At least that's the premise of this Ladies Home Journal advertisement. According to Redditor sn0wdizzle, who posted it and deemed it "sexist," it ran in an issue of the New Yorker sometime during the 1950s. The ad employs the tagline, "Women have a world of their own... And a magazine of their own..." and compares men and women's reactions to various topics and events.


Another Reddit user disagreed with the original poster. "I'm sorry, but I can't tell how this is sexist," nomiS37 commented. "The illustrations portray stereotypes of both men and women not claiming that either is better."
