HIRING WOMEN SPARKS OUTRAGE

Doesn’t take much to get lefties all riled up, does it?

[Advertising agency] M&C Saatchi has sparked outrage after including a striptease performance at a party on Thursday night to celebrate the advertising agency’s 21 years in Australia.

Cue an academic to condemn evil men:

Dr Lauren Rosewarne, senior lecturer in the school of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Melbourne, says advertising has a “very long history” of being a blokey environment.

“If Mad Men taught us anything it’s that this is not a good idea,” she says.

Rosewarne says the advertising industry repeatedly portrays women’s roles as being limited to cooking, cleaning and raising children.

And all too often men are portrayed as complete idiots in adverts.
