Between the infamous peloton commercial, the wilderness childhood Wannabe, who ended up being a subway ad, and the endless #girlboss marketing that reminds you that even women can be part of the capitalist machine was one in 2019 year for the advertising.
But nothing is better than this, which was released in September, but reappeared in a viral tweet on Friday.
The ad starts with a somber statistic: women only hold 10 percent of all patented inventions. Then it continues to a delightful montage of ambitious young women. Everyone is filmed to prepare for their career goals, from mixing sensitive chemicals in a laboratory to carefully checking soil consistency.

The Hasbro Toy Company is making great strides in the name of feminism. Even girls can be owners! At the time of the game’s release, Hasbro got a lot of flak for Ms. Monopoly. Anger had just increased again when the commercial made the Twitter rounds again.
Here is the full version Hasbro posted on his YouTube channel last year.
To be fair, Hasbro gave each of the young inventors a $ 20,580 grant to develop their ideas. The grant amount reflects the total amount of in-game money that comes with each Monopoly box.
However, the rules of the game are bizarre – all in the name of authorization, of course. Female players start at $ 1,900 instead of $ 1,500 as male players do, and collect $ 240 instead of just $ 200 when they match. Unlike in real life, women earn more than men. And instead of collecting real estate, players invest in products invented by women SmithsonianThese include WiFi, chocolate chip cookies and modern shapewear. Ironically, there is no recognition of the monopoly creator Lizzie Magic in the game, whose idea was stolen from a man who sold it to the Parker Brothers, who eventually folded in Hasbro.
But hey, who has to recognize the work of women if you could learn to build monopolies by investing in modern shapewear!
