Artist Gives Vintage Ads A Feminist Makeover By Swapping Gender Roles

Eli Rezkallah is a 31-year-old visual artist/photographer who recently created a photo series entitled, “In a Parallel Universe” that reimagines sexist ads from the mid-20th century with the gender roles reversed.

“Last Thanksgiving, I overheard my uncles talk about how women are better off cooking, taking care of the kitchen, and fulfilling “their womanly duties,” Rezkallah writes on his website. “Although I know that not all men are like my uncles and think that way, I was surprised to learn that some still do, so I went on to imagine a parallel universe, where roles are inverted and men are given a taste of their own sexist poison.”
