Unappreciative Wives take Note 'Women appreciate' billboard in North Carolina sparks protest

I don't know what prompted the billboard, but I understand the sentiments. 
I think, and I could be wrong, the message is geared to unappreciative wives that don't give their husbands the adulation and thanks they deserve for being a good providers.  Husbands who hold it down for their families will know exactly what I'm talking about.    

Fox News reports some women in North Carolina apparently don't 'appreciate' a new billboard.

A billboard appeared last weekend on a highway connecting the city of Winston-Salem to Greensboro that reads, “Real men provide. Real women appreciate it.”

The billboard sits on a heavily-traveled commuter stretch of an offshoot of Interstate 40.
Molly Grace, a boutique owner in Winston-Salem, said she sees the sign as an attempt to silence women who want to be seen as equals to men.

"It's absolutely, absolutely insulting to single mothers, to women who have careers whether they are small careers or big careers," Grace said.

Grace is organizing a peaceful protest, through Facebook, slated for Sunday that will take place under the billboard.
