Transcript of Images of Australia

Blokes drink beer Dads are a bit useless We are an outside nation We are defined by our environment All of them together... Boys are larrikins... and take no rubbish! Boys are tough! We also have songs... Girls don't drink beer, they wear bikinis. Or are mothers... Watch these two examples then list as many ads as you can which echo these themes. What are the implications for our country being defined this way? Watch these beer ads. Head up two columns in your books; Masculinity and Feminity. Describe how the genders are portrayed in each. Women (and thoughtful men!) have fought for equality between the genders. Consider how alcohol is sold to women. How is it different? How have the women been represented in this clip?

Watch these two ads again and answer the following questions. What information and images has been forgrounded in the first ad? What is its purpose and intended audience?
What has been forgrounded in the second ad? Can you identify its purpose and intended audience? (This is trickier.) Your turn!
