Killing Us Softly

One part of volunteer training that consistently gets high reviews and stimulates a lot of very interesting discussion is the excerpt we show from "Still Killing Us Softly" with Jean Kilbourne.

In this video, Jean uses extensive examples to look at how women are portrayed in advertising. What she finds is that everyday advertisements are insidiously perpetuating a culture where the objectification of women and the idea of rape is accepted and even expected.

Well, Jean has been hard at work and "Killing Us Softly 3" is now available. Below is a short clip - and stay tuned for weekly segments!
