Alternate title:Advertising's image of women
Summary:Jean Kilbourne reviews if and how the image of women in advertising has changed over the last 20 years. She uses over 160 ads and commercials to critique advertising's image of women, and now men, inviting viewers to look at familiar images in a new way that moves and empowers them. Originally produced in 2000 as a sequel to Killing us softly, 1979, and Still killing us softly, 1987.
