This after many people to the company that the name "Mansize" was sexist. That name has on the boxes of Kleenex tissues for over 60 years. Kleenex "For Men" tissues were first in 1956. They were advertised as an alternative to cotton handkerchiefs. Adverts said the tissues " strong when wet". The company said that from now, the tissues will be "Extra Large". Many companies around the world are looking at the name of their products to sure they are not gender stereotyping.

It said: "Kimberly-Clark in no way that being both soft and strong is...exclusively masculine....Nor do we that the Mansize branding suggests or gender inequality."
