SLIM HOPES: Advertising and the Obsession with Thinness
This video features Jean Kilbourne (the creator of KILLING US SOFTLY on 'advertising's image of women'). Here, she focuses her attention specifically on the media, body image and health. Her thesis, and the hundreds of examples she presents, leave little doubt that advertisers are preying on the fears and insecurities of women, especially young women, with the result that they are actually encouraging the development of bad nutrition and eating disorders! An excellent resource for both media studies and women's health, this video offers insights and discussion topics that really go to the core of today's consumer society.
