It looks like “Jeopardy” forgot that it’s the year 2014, not 1955.
On Monday (Sept. 29), the game show featured a “What Women Want” category, which highlighted a handful of archaic female stereotypes. The questions and answers insinuated that what women want is help around the house, a pair of good-fitting jeans and a cup of herbal tea. The game show failed to include answers such as “What is equal pay?” and “What are reproductive rights?” into the category.
Of course, people on Twitter had a few choice words to say about the sexist mishap, including “Chicago PD” actress Sophia Bush.

The somewhat positive news? A woman named Elisa Korn ended up winning the show.
What do you think about the “Jeopardy” category?
