NASHVILLE, Tn.-- A new ad campaign from UN Women is using Google as a way to get their message out. The group uses real suggested search terms from Google to support how sexism is still a global issue. 

By typing in the words "women shouldn't," Google's auto-complete system fills in the gaps with some results which has ignited the women's rights debate. 

In the photo above, the search auto-completed "not be in combat...not preach...not speak in church...be seen and not heard...not run."

It's important to note Google's auto-complete system compiles the data from the most searched user terms when deciding how to complete the search. Searches can also provide different results based on geographical location.

The advertisement is being pointed to as a supporting fact that gender inequality still exists.
