Works Cited

Killborn, Jean. Killing Us Softly 4: Advertising’s Image of Women, Prods. Sut Jhally and David Rabinovich, Media Education Foundation, 2010.

Throughout the film, Killborn analyzes commercials to show how they depict women and men in the media. She looks at almost 100 commercials in order to prove her claims about women in the media. You will do something similar when you analyze your ad. Watch closely at how she breaks down a commercial to explain how it represents and reinforces stereotypes about women (and eventually men) in the media.
