Just stating the obvious without getting into a point-counterpoint discussion on interpretation and/or correctness. Sexism, either real or perceived, in slogans, mottoes, heraldry, publications etc is taboo today within the military and federal agencies.

It was based on an old advertising slogan for a very successful campaign for Virginia Slims cigarettes. It managed to work itself into common usage to refer to the progress women were making with new and expanded roles in society. As I recall it wasn'the considered derogatory at the time and depending on the topic even complimentary.

Gil,

 

I agree. I remember when this slogan was around. I guess I am showing my age. HAHAHAHA! I still don't view it as derogatory.

 

It is a nice patch.....Kat
