Rachael Dixon's curator insight, March 16, 2013 10:45 PM

I'd love to use this in class for Health 2.5.  The way women are portrayed in advertising has changed over the years, but for the better?  These days the messages about gender are sometimes obvious (eg "sex sells") but often the messages are obscure and pervasive.

Some historical insight into sexism ...

cgibbons's comment, April 6, 2013 10:12 PM
Agreed- another novel place to look is in old Disney cartoons like Peter Pan where Wendy is seen standing in front of the mirror worrying about her hip size...or in snow white is hunted because the wicked queen is jealous of her beauty...what message do these send... A good way to demonstrate this thinking is pervasive.
