Banned? By whom? Since when? I saw them aired on the Today Show and thought they were great. That's insane! Is there someone we should contact to voice our opinion?


The ad was very and nice and I for one hope to see more like it.

What a sick double standard. That's not even remotely as provocative or pornographic as the typical VS commercial.


Thanks so much for posting this and please let those of us who are writing about boomers know what you find out about why and by whom these women - who look so much like we do - are banned from our screens.

Wow---I have to admit I am surprised, considering what is allowed through. I love those ads.

This will change. I am sure it will. I work with female entrepreneurs 35-55 years old and they are a force to be reckoned with. We can't be stopped!

Maybe we should organize a "we're dropping our facade" campaign as a grassroots movement where all of us every day beautiful women show up and drop our facades in public! We could so market it and make a fuss. Like a PETA demonstration, we would be there in our natural glory and I am sure we could get it filmed....hmmm....I'm in! :-)

Together, we are stronger.
