women imagery in advertising

catherine @ 7:06 am

Came across a very powerful video the other day (Killing Us Softly 3: Advertising’s Image of Women) at Back in skinny jeans and while it is stuff we have all heard before, a little reminder now and then will not kill us. The video can also be found at Google Video.

It is some 30 minutes long so make yourself comfortable. And although the speaker, Jean Kilbourne, describes many of the ads she talks about in her presentation, there is also a study guide for the video available at the Media Education Foundation that includes a synopsis that could be helpful for those who may have problems with a video format.
