A Real Game Show Parody of 'What Women Want'

This week, the normally controversy-free game show "Jeopardy!" managed to insult female viewers with rather confounding answers to its "What Women Want" category.

As critics on Twitter noted, the correct responses weren't things like equal pay, affordable childcare or access to reproductive healthcare. Instead, the rather 1950s-era answers included "What is a vacuum cleaner?", "What is the crossword puzzle?", and even "What are Levi's?" (Levi's... seriously?)

You'd be forgiven if you thought the Jeopardy segment was a parody. (It wasn't.) For a real game show parody of "What Women Want," check out The Story Exchange's comedic sketch below, which uses humor (and a different game show, "The Newlywed Game") to illustrate how girls and women are stereotyped in the professional world.
