Time to end gender bias


Promote women to end gender-based barriers

Esquire magazine editor Alex Bilmes dropped a bombshell when he compared women to cars.

The women we feature in the magazine are ornamental," Bilmes said, speaking on a panel about feminism hosted by Cosmopolitan editor Louise Court at the Advertising Week Europe conference in London.

"[Esquire] provide pictures of girls in the same way we provide pictures of cool cars," he said. "It's ornamental. Women's magazines do the same thing."

"I could lie to you if you want and say we are interested in their brains as well. We are not. They are objectified."
