University of Adelaide is slammed for 'mansplaining' advert

A university has been accused of promoting 'mansplaining' after a poster showing one man teaching five 'students' popped up in Adelaide's city.

The image, which was uploaded on Instagram and quickly went viral, appears to be an advertisement for the education department at the University of Adelaide.

But the university has since distanced itself from the ad, saying that it actually belongs to Renewal SA hoardings outside the old Royal Adelaide Hospital.

The advertisement sits on hoardings outside the Old Royal Adelaide Hospital and sits next to a University of Adelaide ad

'The photo of the hoarding has been deliberately angled and cropped to suggest that the image is directly related to the University, which it is not,' a spokesperson for the University said.

'The photo in question on the Renewal SA hoarding is not a university image. It was not supplied by us. It was not approved by us. The people depicted in that photo are not University people.'
