Killing Us Softly 4

This is a great talk about how women are portrayed in advertising and mainstream media. Take the time to watch it!

Jean Kilbourne shows us how advertising sells us distorted and destructive ideals of femininity. I took several classes at university on feminism, media and reading images - this lecture was a great refresher course.

Jean Kilbourne's work is pioneering and crucial to the dialogue of one of the most underexplored, yet most powerful, realms of American culture advertising. We owe her a great debt.

Part 1

Part 2 - keep watching!
