Killing us softly by Jean Kilbourne
Thanks for sharing, C! I absolutely recommend you all watch this. Keywords: advertising, ideal of beauty, popular culture, consumerism, sexualization of consumer products, eroticization of violence.
Some quotes from both parts:
“Our popular culture seems to have the ability to make women everywhere and everywhere feel absolutely terrible about themselves.”
“At the same time that we allow our children to be sexualized, we refuse to educate them about sex.”
“When the culture offers girls and women only one way to be sexy, it can hardly be considered an authentic choice to choose it.”
