Many thanks to Jezebel for highlighting these great new ads. Honey Grahams emphasize their wholesomeness with an ad that pays tribute to a range of happy, loving families.
And Betabrand has women with PhDs modeling its line of “smart fashions.” This is great news just as a new study has shown that playing with Barbies, even “career” Barbies, causes girls to have a more limited notion of what their job options are. (For some reason, though, not Mrs. Potatohead.) It’s nice to know that girls and women — and boys and men — will look at ads like these and see the unlimited possibilities life offers them.
