I post some data which might help you to draw a picture of the real situation of women who live in Spain:
1 - We dedicate 7 hours and 22 minutes per day to maintain our home (clean, look after the children...) - Men only 3 (average)
2 - 90% of women suffer mobbing at work when they are pregnant
3 - Unemployment women rate doubles men's one (11% - 6%)
4 - 52% of students at University are women
5 - Only 4.1% of women have had sex with 10 or more men (21.6% of men)
6 - 55.6% of women (24.4% of men) have made love with just one man
7 - 13% of women carry condoms in their first date (70% men)
8 - In 1975 the birth rate was 2.8%, thirty years later... 1.3%!
9 - If you are buying pills to help you to sleep or Prozac... you might be a woman (70% - 30%)
10 - WE CAN DO IT!

What would you think if I told you that only 4.4% of members of Spanish Royal Academies are women?
Taking this into consideration, it is not surprising to know that only 3.8% of women have responsibilities in these organisations :-(
Now I can understand why 70% of people who take anti-depressive are also women...

I don't really know when this campaign was launched but it is really provocative. I think that this is what designers pretended because at least we are talking about it, I am writing about it... Nevertheless, I believe that there are certain limits.
What do you think about that Ad? I have read that some people say that the problem is not the picture but our minds. 50% is told, 50% is imagined. That is to say, it is not our fault it is YOUR fault, you that have perverse minds and imagine that this girl is going to be raped while some guys not only permit it but enjoyed watching it.
In Spain, last year (2006) 91 women died in their husband's hands... You cannot turn that into an icon of sexuality misunderstood!
I write about everything that needs (h)activism, particularly gender issues and media. I am very concerned about stereotypes and how media use them, that is to say, misrepresentation.
