Black and Decker is in trouble.
"...[The Swedish] Ethical Council against Gender Discriminatory Advertising
(ERK) slammed an advert that promised beauty treatments for the wives of men
who bought its products...'Through this text, the council finds that (the
company) conveyed an outdated view of gender roles in which women are
expected to be placated with beauty treatments while men buy tools,' ERK
said in its ruling."
Black & Decker said, in its defense, that it tried reversing the offer, but
no one took them up on it.
