    Do men exploit women or do women exploit themselves?

    Today, women are often seen as an object to men, marketing, sales, ect.

    Is this really the fault of the men... or women?

    I believe its no one fault.  It depend on the person in question if they allow other people or themselves to be exploited.

    Both. The women's movement came to the forefront in the 1970s. Women wanted to be paid equally in the workplace and to be regarded as capable beings who did not need men's help. They did not want to be thought of as sex objects,.
    Today, however, we see women who have reversed the roles,  using sex as a  powerful tool against men. The dress and behavior in and out of the workplace is everything we fought against, and men have more or less been emasculated by the confusion of mixed messages.  Men inherently see women as sex objects but most contain the behavior and commit to monogamous relationships.  Too many women today tease men with provocative dress then act offended if a man acts on his urges. It's absurd!

    Both sexes exploit one another get what they want. Each of us selects our own friends, lovers, and spouse. Good or bad we can't forget at some point in time we said "yes". With regard to businesses....they are in business to make a profit. Each of us decides whether or not a product is worth spending our hard earned money. People vote with their wallets. If something sells well then you are likely to see more products like it. The reason why you don't see creams and lotions that defy aging for men is because very few men would purchase those products. If they did, businesses would race to put those products on the shelf.
    Awhile back I wrote a hub about gender differences which explains why business markets to men and women differently.

    With the exception of children, nobody can be exploited unless they allow it to happen.
