A Cup of Absurdly Sexist Coffee Ads to Celebrate International Women’s Day


Remember the good old days…? When family values reigned supreme. When politicians were pure and wholesome. When coffee tasted grand. When advertising agencies actually allowed coffee companies to show a man beating his wife because of the quality of the coffee she bought… (Yes, the featured image for this post is a real ad for Chase and Sanborn Coffee Company).

Ahhh yes – the good old days. Some might say the greatest generation.

Today is International Women’s Day and, to celebrate, I ashamedly present to you a video compilation of absurdly sexist coffee ads from the 1960’s. 

Happy International Women’s Day, from the Table, to everybody who identifies themselves as female and their allies.

As for the rest of you? Get your shit together.
