“Killing Us Softly” (Jean Kilbourne)

We all know that media affects us to some degree. Here is a video about girls and women, and the effect of media and advertising on their self-esteem, self-perceptions and lives. The delivery of this message is brilliant! It’s truly an interesting piece.

I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I have. I invite everyone -including men- to take a few minutes for this. πŸ™‚

All four parts of the video are posted below. (Approx. 30-35 minutes)

    This was too depressing for me to finish watching it.

      Thanks for taking the time to watch what you were able to watch! Although it is a rather depressing subject, I think it’s important for us to have a discussion about it. It’s amazing how much we’re affected (both individually and collectively) by all kinds of exterior influences, and how little we actually pay attention to these influences… Hopefully it helped you in one way or another; my main goal in posting this was to reach as many young girls and women as possible. πŸ™‚
