#346 Because of these signs.
These signs might give you a few giggles at your favourite bar or gain you a few likes on your Facebook wall, but they also perpetuate gender stereotypes and dehumanise women. The stereotypes depicted in the images above make daily life harder for women, and men, as they taint our interactions at the workplace, in our universities and in our private lives. By brushing it aside, saying it’s “just a joke”, we normalise these stereotypes and sexist behaviour and therefore never actually address the problems sexism causes. Don’t be afraid to question a sexist joke!
