"Jean Kilbourne’s pioneering work helped develop and popularize the study of gender representation in advertising. Her award-winning Killing us Softly films have influenced millions of college and high school students across two generations and on an international scale. In this important new film, Kilbourne reviews if and how the image of women in advertising has changed over the last 20 years.

With wit and warmth, Kilbourne uses over 160 ads and TV commercials to critique advertising’s image of women. By fostering creative and productive dialogue, she invites viewers to look at familiar images in a new way, that moves and empowers them to take action."

Calvin Klein "rape" ad.





Lady Gaga "Bad Romance"

Video from: YouTube.com
Gaga’s ’Bad Romance’ video details young women being kidnapped, abused, drugged and exploited - ultimately sold to the Russian Mafia for undoubted rape and slavery. Yet the message is : This is sexy and desirable. These situations are monstrous and horrific, but you girls should embrace it like Gaga has. If you want to be "valuable" like Gaga, you better have a body like that and learn to dance!
