5.0 out of 5 stars Revolutionary article - must buy!, 20 Aug. 2012
By 
This review is from: BiC For Her Medium Ballpoint Pen (Box of 12) - Black (Office Product)
This pen is great. I bought it for all my female friends and relatives. It enabled them, finally, to write things (although they may not yet know to do so on paper; but you can only expect so much, really). I thought they were just a bit slow.

My mother, a hard-working woman who raised twelve kids single-handedly whilst doing all the ironing (as nature intended), was furtively abashed by her illiteracy. Long would she gaze upon her husband and sons' scrawlings and would dedicate five minutes a day (which she really should have spent making sandwiches) to pray that one day she would be granted the ability to create such scribbles of her own. She's still a little slow on the uptake, but this product has definitely helped start the ball rolling. We tried to give her men's pens but she used to rip the cartridges out and drink the ink. Typical woman.

Anyway, it's good that BIC are finally doing something to aid the plight of women. Hopefully a range of 'for her' paperclips is on the horizon - my wife has an awful time keeping her recipes together.

You're being praised on FB as well! This has been widely circulated. Keep up the good work!

Lmao! I love that episode of 'Futurama'. Of course, I AM a woman, so I didn't understand it all.

God love British snark. Made this American's day.

I just pray that someday I have courage enough being just a woman and all, to pick up one of these pens and try to make out a legible grocery list.
