Advertising and the Obsession With Thinness
Clips and images illustrate Jean Kilbournes analysis of media messages that harm women: idealized beauty, impossible standards of thinness, bodies perfected by make-up and plastic surgery, appetite for food equated with sexual appetite, and control of appetite equated with morality. She ends with prescriptions for creating healthier female self-images. Grades 7 and up. English with English subtitles. Color. 30 minutes. Media Education Foundation. ©1995.
