How do you think this effects boys views of girls/women with never seeing them in publications?
Dunno. How do you think it would?

I understand it is an easy way out but I am asking is that the real reason they have no pictures of girls/women.
Because men cant be trusted to look at women and not get "thoughts".
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Many of us here grew up that way. Never had a negative effect. I had sisters, mother, aunts, relatives, neighbors etc. & not showing them in publications did not make me respect them any less.

Sounds better than this:

That was an ad in a local Monsey circular. I also thought it looked a bit weird, but it was in a frum, chassidish publication, so I understood, sort of. But why is the author of the article going around and canvassing the globe for such examples? Can't she understand that some communities are more frum than the others, and have their own guidelines?

Why not?
Speak to appropriate LORs and make a known guideline.

Mishpacha and Ami cater to a very wide spectrum of people, from Mizrachi to Satmar. Who should their Rabbis be?
Brevity may be the soul of wit, but floridity is its spirit.

Do they not seek guidance when discussing any topics or when questions arise? Who do they turn to?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Does girls growing up playing with Barbie dolls instead of erector sets make them less likely to grow up wanting to be engineers? There are unintended consequence to everything thing we do. If you think this doesn't affect girls and boys you are fooling yourself.

And don't answer that they should speak to their own because that can preclude them from selling to certain communities with different standards.

I am saying it will effect how you view them. What about school books? Are they stricken from them also?

How about the way women are depicted in secular publications such as the ads in the NYT? How does that affect how people will view women? Is that better or worse?
