Killing Us Softly 3: Advertising's Image of Women (1999) (trailer)
4.0 · 8

Jean Kilbourne continues her groundbreaking analysis of advertising's depiction of women in the third 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.
