We’ve come a long way since 1911, haven’t we?
Y’know, we have smartphones capable of launching space shuttles, automobiles capable of driving themselves, and women’s rights have changed quite a bit.

If you could not tell because you were so wrapped up in all the misogyny, this is actually an ad for Listerated Pepsin Gum. If you’re not sure what that is, pepsin gum is similar to Wrigley’s Spearmint or Juicy Fruit gum.
Still, this ad hasn’t aged very well.
