This sign will change the way you look at bathroom doors forever

We should have known.

WE ALL KNOW the standard signs for males and females that adorn nearly every bathroom door we have ever seen.

But, we never thought that the female icon might not even be wearing a skirt at all. Behold:

US software company Axosoft has started a campaign to change this perception with their website It Was Never a Dress


The superhero sign is just the start of the campaign – as the website goes on to say:

It Was Never a Dress is an invitation to shift perceptions and assumptions about women and the audacious, sensitive, and powerful gestures they make every single day. In the coming weeks, we will be inviting submissions for sharing stories, images and ideas about perceptions and realities.

And it has led to the hashtag #ItWasNeverADress cropping up all over Twitter

Superheroes. Superheroes everywhere.
