My wrap-up of the most sexist ads of the year. Honestly, not a bad year in this respect. I went back and forth on a few contenders for No. 10, but in th end I had to give it to Google for focusing their newest email innovations on shoe shopping and mani-pedis.

I came here for the Max Headroom photo and stayed because of the endless stream of ad highlights and facts. Great job, David. I can tell you put a lot of work into putting this all together!

Some critics say too many men are being brought in to create ads advocating for women. I've recapped a few of the biggest examples. What are your thoughts?

Huge reaction to my AdFreak post on this new campaign for UN Women. What do you think could be done to truly change the type of results we see to these searches in Google?

Realized after watching this video that I need to do more, and we all need to do more, to support women creating video content amid a flood of sexism.

First thing I picked up on my trip to NYC last week: pizza by the slice. And no, it wasn't Sbarro.
