Parker Definitely Missed the Mark With This One

Click Americana

Parker Pen Company is probably one of the biggest names in ball pen making, and they probably assumed that this Compact Jotter was so incredibly inspired, with its ability to write up to 80,000 words without refilling. But the fact that it’s being advertised as a ‘girl-sized’ pen for a ‘girl-sized hand’ is awfully patronizing. The ad could have said that since girls are smaller and weaker, they need a small pen to match, it’s basically what they were saying anyway. Talk about major gender inequality!
