    Watchdogs to get tough on gender stereotypes

    Advertising watchdog to get tough on gender stereotypes

    Advertisements that show men failing at simple household tasks and women left to clean up are set to be banned by the UK advertising watchdog.

    The Advertising Standards Authority will crack down on ads that feature stereotypical gender roles.

    Ads that mock people for not conforming to gender types or reinforce gender roles had "costs for individuals, the economy and society", the ASA said.

    As a result new rules will be drawn up that will take effect next year.

    Read more on this from The BBCHERE




    It appears that gender stereotyping is the last of the everyday bigotry that needs to be dealt with.

    What do you feel about this subject, and do you feel that gender stereotyping does need to be stopped ?

    Some people, with their heads well back in history seem unable to stop generating stereotypes.

    One would have thought that we would be past all of that nonsense by now.

    Yes we are learning to throw off our old bad habits but it is only happening very slowly.

    What a great idea Papa.

    It is about time that gender stereotypes were outlawed, especial when the stereotypes are aimed at women.

    Being a male feminist, ( and there are not a lot of those in a pound ), I agree that women are easy targets for gender stereotyping.

    Now that the news about the wages in the public servants, and especially in the BBC, has hit the headlines we are going to see, ( I hope ), gender, religious, and race inequality reduced so that fairness will at last reign in the secretive annals of the BBC and British politics.
