What did not work:

 

Amazon Pay

Very stereotypical representation of boys, men providing for and taking care of women. All transactions are also taking place between men.

 

Gender Sensitivity Score (GSS): 2.25/5

 

Viacom18 Sports

It can not get more stereotypical. 

 

GSS: 2.25/5

 

Special mention:

 

Britannia

Once again, this ad glamourises unruly and indecent behaviour through a sports icon. Humorous? Definitely, not. Do desi herbs cause uncouth behaviour? I wonder!

 

GSS: 2/5
