Advertising Women Working

These series of Swiffer Commercials get me every time. I know that Beauty and the Beast's new edition was a big hit, but common, brooms aren't actually alive.  Also, it is 2011, are cleaning advertisements still only targeting women?

And it isn't just cleaning advertisements. There are a bunch of advertisements that show women as ponds for men, much like this one....

Or even this one...

So these are a little dated, but still. I mean common, these are outrageous.  Here are some more modern advertisements that are no better.

If a women cannot cook, she better have a good rack.

Is this Doritos commercial serious?

Advertisements are everywhere, and when most of them have negative constructions of women, there is a big problem.
