Film Overview

In this newest update of her pioneering Killing Us Softly series, the first in more than a decade, Jean Kilbourne takes a fresh look at how advertising traffics in distorted and destructive ideals of femininity. The film marshals a range of new print and television advertisements to lay bare a stunning pattern of damaging gender stereotypes – images and messages that too often reinforce unrealistic, and unhealthy, perceptions of beauty, perfection, and sexuality. Killing Us Softly 4 challenges students to take advertising seriously, and to think critically about popular culture and its relationship to sexism, eating disorders, and gender violence. View the trailer below.
