Equal Opportunities International
Article publication date: 1 March 2000
Defines advertising and looks at the way it is part of the whole home environment. Considers the influence and power various media possess with particular emphasis on women. Addresses how advertising reinforces the existing power roles within society and questions if recent evidence shows any change in this position. Concludes that most individuals are aware of the unrealistic nature of some advertising but advertisers still often represent the “establishment” and stick to proven methods of success.
