ARE YOU ALL SERIOUS?! These were sexist ads that promoted faux feminism so that women would think it was liberating to buy their product. Virginia Slims didn't give a damn about women's liberation and neither did any other marketing campaign in the 70s. These ads used the idea of women's liberation to suck consumers (women) into buying their products for narcissistic means rather than liberation. These aren't cute ads and this was in no way a triumph for women to have their own kind of cigarette.
