I’ve found a great video titled “Killing Us Softly”. It’s about advertising’s image of women. It’s enlightening, funny, entertaining. It’s only 35 minutes long, which is a shame, but it gives a very good idea of what the problem is. Ideal for women who don’t think advertising is “not important”.
One line I found hilarious:
” ‘Does your husband whish you had larger breasts?’. And if he does the implication is clear, you better change your body, … as opposed to changing your husband.”
