Culture  Through  Film Spring 2009 Killing Us Softly  3 Written  and  Presented  by Jean Kilbourne, Producer, Sut Jhally, 2000, 34 mins. Kilbourne  provides  an analysis of the representation  of women  in advertising  to illustrate  the demanding   roles put  on women  and  girls to try and  live up  to the idyllic images of femininity.  As well, for both men   and  women, these images construct women  and  girls in a manner  that has far reaching effects on all of  society, and  how  we "view" women. Discussion Questions 1) Kilbourne  says that there is nothing  wrong  with sex in itself, but in how  it is continually used  to  construct an ideal image of womanhood.   What does she mean  by this? 2) What is meant  by the "fragmentation" of women's  bodies in advertising?  How  does this represent   women  and  what  are its effects?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
