“Real Women Provide” Billboard Has Been Put Up To Counter The “Real Men Provide” Billboard


real-women-billboardA new billboard message has just gone up in South Carolina in opposition to the recent controversial billboard in the Winston-Salem area that read  “Real men provide. Real women appreciate it.”

The new billboard message, now displayed in the town of Lexington, SC, just outside of Columbia, reads “Real women provide, Everyone appreciates it,” along with the hashtag “#InternationalWomensDay”.

The billboard first went up last week, created and paid for by the owner of the billboard, Outfront Media.

After the controversial billboard went up in North Carolina, a group of activists, lead by the owner of a Winston-Salem women’s boutique called Kleur, protested the billboard and now plan to erect their own sign in North Carolina with a counter message.

Outfront Media has stated that they are unaffiliated with the NC group, and that they put up the message to promote a positive outlook on women, according to a press release.

What are your thoughts on the billboard messages?
