The Cleveland Cavaliers' Video of Domestic Violence Wasn't a 'Mistake'

The Cleveland Cavaliers' Video of Domestic Violence Wasn't a 'Mistake' | Herstory | Scoop.it
This video, which spread like wildfire across social media last week, was just the latest example of the way organizations continuously downplay the impact of domestic violence and rape culture. In turn, this betrays how little we as a society care for, or even think of, victims of interpersonal violence.

This caught my eye and I am saving it for my critical thinking class -  my question to my students this quarter is: what do we believe now that will be completely refuted in the future?  We used to think being the girl friend or wife was the ultimate success.  

So what will change in another twenty years?

On advertising history, feminism and marketing in the future: Destroying the point

On advertising history, feminism and marketing in the future: Destroying the point | Herstory | Scoop.it

The social media movement born of Alan Jones' sexist comments had huge early success, but its clicktivists' wings have since been clipped. It was around the year of my birth that Philip Morris began a campaign to seduce its female smokers. In an era largely untroubled by my pregnant mother's cigarettes, the Virginia Slims campaign was, in itself, unsurprising.

 

What was surprising was the company's use of a ''women's libber'' to promote its product. This was the first time feminism sold anything to anyone; apart from its core principles, I suppose. Since then, the idea of an emerging social freedom has been used many times to sell women face cream and alcohol. The ''you go girl'' message has been successfully co-opted to bring my gender high heels and financial services and small cars. Because you're worth it.

 

These days, women are still buying back their own dissent from advertisers. But things are different now. In an age of social networking, where so many of us feel we are in ''control'' of our media, the way to a lady's wallet is a more difficult business....

From Chanel to Burberry, fashion is now a branch of the porn industry

From Chanel to Burberry, fashion is now a branch of the porn industry | Herstory | Scoop.it
These days, models like Keira Knightley (inset) pose open mouthed, their eyes half-closed as if in a state of arousal. Sometimes they lie on their backs, like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley did recently.
Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Despite the fact that this issue was discussed back when I was in college decades ago -- and likely long before that, this article makes the following claims:


  • Fashion adverts no longer sell fashion - they sell sex
  • The pornification of the fashion world is affecting our young girls
  • The advent of airbrushing and rise of internet porn are responsible
