Pens for Her

By Maritza Gordillo

As I was browsing through upworthy.com, I came across a video from Ellen DeGeneres. I love her show because it is humorous, but I especially love her sarcasm when it came to standing up for women as she talks about the new product the company BIC came out with; Pens for Her. She criticizes the fact that this company wanted her to promote a product that is totally sexist; c’mon, Ellen is a feminist! The product describes that these pens are made to fit a woman’s hand and they come in woman colors like pink and purple and because of this they are more expensive (even double the price). Watch the video and laugh at this absurd, sexist product, but more importantly share it with others to bring consciousness of how ridiculous our society has become.
