Virginia Slims Cigarettes, 1971

"Presenting some new clichés Virginia Slims would like to drop into the English language.

A woman's best friend is her dog.
A woman's home is her castle.
The bigger the woman, the harder she falls.
No woman is an island.
We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all women are created equal.
Woman shall not live by bread alone.
One small step for woman, one giant step for womankind.
After all, when you have your own slim cigarette, you really deserve your own clichés, too.

You've come a long way, baby."
