and the rant continues

Firstly, good for Pantene. I wash my hair with baking soda now, but if I didn’t I would use Pantene just because of this ad.

Secondly, what can we do to change this? Frankly, I’m fed up with exactly this thing. Women are still, in the 21st century forcryingoutloud, expected to be quiet, agreeable, friendly, nurturing, submissive.

WE’RE NOT!! At least not all the time. Or at least we shouldn’t be. Especially not submissive.

It’s time the world got used to it. Who knows, it might just be good for all of us.

    Good on you! There aren’t enough good role models around though, in my experience. My own partner would benefit enormously from having more strong, assertive, intelligent women around.

    Interesting that while inherently commenting on the gender issue, they use pale-skinned models and play straight into the racial trap. Seems we all have our prejudices, but some are more marketable than others…
