Open Thread on Advertising and Body Image

Share

During my career as a media literacy expert, I have squirreled away a number of advertisements over the years that I think are great examples of how the media dictates how women (and men) are supposed look and feel. Below is an ad that ran a few years back for Candies perfume and shoes.

Instead of telling you what I think, I want to hear from you. What do you think of this ad? Especially knowing that it was in such magazines as Cosmo, Maxim and Elle.
