Re: Equality in advertising

To me the solution is so simple, I wonder what is the obvious thing I'm missing:

Let advertisers aim their ads at whoever they like. But also make all ads available to anyone who requests them, filtered only by such terms as the viewer specifies.

Then any woman using Facebook would easily be able to get a list of ads for job type XY, even if the advertisers themselves ticked "men only".
