Gender Reversal – Retro Sexist Adverts


In A Parallel Universe
is a series of photographic images which recreate real advertisement posters from the 1950s ‘Mad Men’ era. However, artist and photographer Eli Rezkallah from Beirut, Lebanon has taken these sexist and condescending retro images of women and reversed the gender roles in his modern-day makeover.

From disciplinary spankings to claims a woman’s place is in the kitchen, these vintage adverts are rife with sexism, disturbing female objectification and thankfully nowadays laughable stereotypes. His droll twist on these ads cast a spotlight onto notions of gender roles and sexism and hopefully for the world at large will spark a conversation about modern-day gender discrimination. While for us progressives in femdom 🙂 they’re not that surprising!

Just to clarify the smaller images are all genuine published advertisments!

Kitchen Bimbo to Sex Object
But… before we all think it’s safe to open the magazines – sadly the sexism is still there it’s just more subtle and dressed up with a bit more gloss and glamour. ‘She’ may have moved out of the kitchen but is still an object, now a sex object subject to male power.

    The 1950’s were messed up! Seeing this really makes me appreciate all the hard work of feminism and women to bring down this disturbing patriarchy. And you’re right, still work to do! Thank you Mistress Sidonia!

    Very telling upheaval of what went for sex roles up until little more than a half century past… shall the next step be nearly a full feminization of the what used to be ‘men’ to a point of absolute subservient ‘male girl’ status and total Female empowerment where previous sex roles shall never be anything but vague comic memory?

    It would seem extremely likely.
