Hi, UN Women has created a powerful ad campaign showing what women should and shouldn't according to popular searches on Google. The campaign leverages Google's suggest feature and shows search boxes over women portraits. The search boxes contain phrases such as "Woman cannot" or "Women shouldn't" and below the search boxes you can see a number of suggested completions, which are based on the popularity of actual search queries. The results are both surprising and shocking.

Inspired by this campaign, I have tried similar queries for men on Bing and created the screenshots below. Let's see what men should and shouldn't ...
