The Age Online Reaches For The ‘Disembodied Women’s Bits’ Folder Again

Posted by Clem Bastow on July 11, 2008

Those photo editors at TheAge.com.au just can’t seem to get enough of those delicious female bodyparts this week; today’s edition of Bits Daily is this one, on the front page, aiming to draw your eye to the My Career section

That’s right, ladies, you better make sure you have dainty feet and a cute handbag if you want to be seen as skilled!

It’s even more pointless considering the article itself employs a no less stupid, but at least less sexist, image of a hand with a pencil. So do we assume, then, that TheAge.com.au is worried they won’t get click-throughs if they don’t use women’s bits to lure the readers? The mind boggles.
