Despite all the talk about women's rights and gender equality and what seems to be an increased commitment by governments and other players in the international community to fight for women's rights, stereotypes remain hard to break.
A recent, powerful ad campaign launched by U.N. Women, the United Nations body that focuses on women's issues, highlighted how gender inequality is a worldwide problem.
The adverts show genuine women-related search terms entered into the world's most popular search engine, Google. The results of the searches are quite alarming.
