One cookbook illustrates so many issues: body image, ageing, racism, marketing & consumerism. Oh, and recipes too ;)

Understanding Female Relationships With Greeting Cards

Understanding Female Relationships With Greeting Cards | A Marketing Mix | Scoop.it

While Hallmark was run by a man — or men with a few “poor working girls,” and can be seen as The Man, you can’t deny the serious dedication the company had to targeted marketing. They spent oodles of dollars and gobs of time focused on what sold and who bought it — including focus groups of women. If women weren’t buying the charming illustrations of women in their dainties and picture-laden puns of underthings, Hallmark wouldn’t have made them.Let alone so many of them.


...So one has to at least include the probability that women’s adoration of the female form, our so-called bisexuality or ability to be more fluid in our sexuality, has been around for a long time and perhaps has as much to do with “sex sells,” sexist ads, and our culture’s consumption of pornography as the patriarchy does.
