        In this advertisement, a group of men dressed like fishermen stands on the deck of a boat around their catch of the day: a topless woman portrayed as a fish. The woman is tied upside down by heavy chains and looks distressed while staring at all the other motionless fish beside her. She is covering her breasts with one of her hands as the other hangs limply by her side. In contrast, the men are all fully clothed: they are wearing fashionable knit sweaters and stand with their chests puffed out. All have confident and defiant looks on their faces.

Sex and gender are often thought as two categories that are dependent of each other. In all reality though, sex and gender can have two sperately different answers that don't relate. In the article " BEARDS AND BODIES Doing Sex in a Gendered World" by Raine Dozier, he quotes from Lorber saying "Talking about gender for most people is equivelent of fish talking about water" meaning that gender is not a topic most people talk about.

Inequality will always be present no matter where you are. Since the beginning of mankind, women were tagged as being the inferior species towards men. Through time and hard work, women battled for human rights and obtaining equality. They had no rights for education and so they were doomed to cleaning the house and raise kids. Women took a stand and fought for their rights, as if they were no different then men. They now have the legal rights to vote and educate themselves. So the idea that men and women can never really be equal is false.
