Hallmark

This is a Hallmark birthday card for a young girl:

 

 

TEXT: “You’re 13 today! If you had a rich boyfriend, he’d give you diamonds and rubies. Well, maybe next year you will – when you’ve bigger boobies!”

 

A woman in the UK posted a picture of it on Twitter. Over the next 6 hours, it was “re-tweeted, blogged about and posted across the Internet … [until] Hallmark UK apologized for and pledged to stop selling the sexist card.” The social pressure on Hallmark and their reaction is a great example of how speaking out about sexism matters!
