Mocking Feminism in a Smirnoff Ad » Sociological Images

Mocking Feminism in a Smirnoff Ad » Sociological Images | Exploring Feminism | Scoop.it

In a collection of alcohol ads from the 1960s and ’70s, Retronaut included an ad that is a nice example of how marketers sometimes co-opt social movements. In this case, the co-optation works against the movement, sending the opposite message that it intended. “I never even thought of burning my bra until I discovered Smirnoff,” says a woman with bedroom eyes. The message, of course, is not that a woman who drinks the vodka will become politicized; instead, it is that Smirnoff will “loosen her up” and facilitate seduction.
