Equality is humanity’s Holy Grail, the cornerstone of most value systems, but we have yet to reap all of its rewards. Sure, our society has tremendously evolved for the better during the last, say, 100 years, but a long journey is still ahead, and the vast array of double standards that still divide people to this day highlight this perfectly.
The double standard definition states that it is a rule or a principle applied to different people or groups. The most prominent case of double standard examples to this day come from gender equality. What’s usually okay for men, is not acceptable when done by women. Starting with beach attire and ending with lady bosses, society finds unnecessary ways to chime in about what’s wrong and what’s right.
We’ve compiled a list of insightful illustrations that uncover the uncomfortable truth behind some everyday life situations, and it’s (mildly) disturbing how accurate they are. Judging by these images, it’s clear that sometimes terms like ‘gender equality’ are reduced to no more than a catchphrase. Scroll down to see the proof for yourself, and vote for your favorites.
