In this advertisement by Bed Bath & Beyond, there is a woman in the middle surrounded by items you may need to buy for the holidays. This is a very sexist advertisement and implies that it is the women’s job to cook, do the housework, and clean. You would never see an advertisement with a man in the middle instead.
