People Are Roasting The Crap Out Of Maccas For Their Very Lazy International Women’s Day Stunt
Can't believe Maccas solved sexism.
It’s over ladies. They did it. Sexism is finished, and it’s all thanks to McDonald’s.
Yesterday was International Women’s Day, and to mark the occasion the fast food chain flipped its iconic golden arches at one of its California restaurants so that the ‘M’ looked like a ‘W’.
Try not to cut yourself on those shattered pieces of glass ceiling.

In a statement, the company said they wanted to recognise “the extraordinary contribution of women”.
“From employees and franchisees, to suppliers and community partners, to our customers, we are inspired by your strength and leadership. In the U.S., we’re proud to share that 6 out of 10 restaurant managers are women. They run the McDonald’s business each and every day.”
But for some strange reason, not everyone was impressed.
I’m feeling very powerful today and I think it must be the McDonalds arches

McDonalds: In celebration of women we are flipping the arches upside down.
Or you could give your employees better benefits.
McD: Look it’s a W!
Maybe a living wage? Better family leave? A career path forward in the face of automation?
McD: The W stands for women.
