Sexist Goodyear Commercial from '70s


Ahh, 1970. It was a very Goodyear bad year for women and being taken seriously. This Goodyear ad for polyglas tires, which is set up like a horror film complete with a menacing soundtrack, claims that "when a woman's at the wheel, polyglas means more than mileage." Alert the press! Woman on the road! Hide your children! The earth may spin off its axis! (No wonder the '70s was a huge decade for the women's movement.)

Thanks, Feministing!
