While this video showing a mom who was tough on her child and faces flak from the family has gone viral for its tough mom message, what are the other messages that it is sending out?
This recent video promoting All Out mosquito repellent has reached lakhs of people and has apparently been liked and shared by around 2 lakh people till now (around 11.30 pm last night when I posted this on my Facebook page) but for me it’s wrong on so many counts. Even though the creative visualizers and the director wished to convey a good message, they managed to convey and affirm only the prevalent sexism and patriarchy.
One good intention doesn’t justify the propagation of so many wrongs through the same video. Here is a quick list:
How I wish the creators of this advertisement had better sense! In fact, it should actually be reported to the advertising standards council for being derogatory towards women.
Curious about anything and everything. Proud to be born a woman. Spiritual, not religious. Blogger,
Exactly my view. Thanks for putting it into words.
Thank you for the support.
Please report this ad & run a campaign. We will support you. We support the future daughters.
I felt the same. Also, she needed the approval of the FIL on her decision. Even the other ladies in the family also accept FIL decision without questioning or arguing their point. patriarchical stereotypes.
As i observe, this family doesn’t encourage an open dialogue between the three generations. Misogyny and sexism are so apparent in the way the DIL bears insults and even the FIL snarls at his wife. An oppressive atmosphere pervades even at the dinner table which is not conducive to raising mentally, emotionally, intellectually healthy children. The very choice of this setting is so wrong.
