'Jeopardy!' Didn't Realize Its 'What Women Want' Category Was Sexist (Photos)


Ladies, you're about to grip your pearls in anger.

On Monday, the game show "Jeopardy!" introduced a category titled What Women Want.

But instead of using the questions as an opportunity to talk about female businesswomen, feminism or anything worthwhile, Alex Trebek and his crew threw it back to the 1950s.

The questions asked about denim and vacuums and even played into stereotypes about the nagging wife.

Women across the country, including actress Sophia Bush, tweeted their displeasure, asking why "Jeopardy!" hadn't even mentioned equal pay or women's rights.

In a small moment of justice, a woman won the episode.

Here's what "Jeopardy!" thinks women really want:



Sleepytime tea

A crossword puzzle

A vacuum cleaner

Women had plenty to say about the category.
