Wiki & Abstracts (no.9) - Women's Role in Media (part 3)

In part three of my WOMEN IN MEDIA blog post I want to focus on women we SHOULD be listening too.

This woman who knows her stuff and is an EXPERT on this topic.

The video below features Jean Kilbourne who speaks about her groundbreaking analysis of advertising's depiction of women in this most recent update of her pioneering Killing Us Softly series. In fascinating detail, Kilbourne decodes an array of print and television advertisements to reveal a pattern of disturbing and destructive gender stereotypes. Her analysis challenges us to consider the relationship between advertising and broader issues of culture, identity, sexism, and gender violence.
