Demi Varkevisser's insight:

1) Compare these advertisements with modern sexist advertisements. What are the major differences?

 

2) You are hired by an advertisement company to select the image and text to be used. Would you use an image percieved as disrespectful to women? Explain why/why not.

In delving into the politics of women's representation in advertisements, it is hard to conjure up new arguments to spark up original conversations.
