12 Unbelievable Sexist Signs
We apologize for the whistling construction workers, but man you look good!

Since so many women have experienced street harassment -- an estimated 90 percent of women by age 19 -- it's perhaps no surprise the ad didn't go over well. A Change.org petition to remove the sign is quickly gathering signatures, and another one has been started on Stopstreetharassment.org.
Instead, however, it was met with consumer backlash, and the sportswear firm pulled the ad and acknowledged that it was "offensive." The promotional gaffe was not part of a worldwide marketing campaign, but thanks to social media, the reaction has been global.
