How to speak English.


In this advert, women are represent as weak, not being able to open a simple bottle. She has a shocked expression enhancing and enforcing the idea that men are the alpha-beings, that men are typically the stronger gender. It creates humour by playing on the fact that it’s a small bottle that’s easy to open, but because women are so “dainty” and “delicate” that they can’t open it. People are meant to agree with the fact that women are seen like this and that they can only accomplish the simplest of tasks.  I think that although this advert does make me laugh from the comedy side, it would never be allowed in this era. It’s quite sexist towards women, showing them as vulnerable and incapable.

English Lang is really good
