This coat talks.” “You can learn more about anatomy after school” 1:50-3:40 Gender in the media is very prevalent but how women are portrayed is clearly wrong. Women, no matter the age, seem to always have issues with their bodies because of what they see everyday in these ads on television, in magazines, and even on the radio. This is only continuing these problems and advertisers are aware of this. Young women have insecurities and the advertising industry plays this to their advantage in order to gain the most money possible. Jean Kilbourne shows us women do not have to fit the ideal image of a woman in order to be beautiful.
