I saw the first, Killing Me Softly; Images of Women in Advertising, when it came out in the 70s. I was convinced that this brilliant betrayal of the destructive images of women would bring on a revolution that would give our daughters a chance to love their bodies and themselves without having to waste their lives attempting to measure up to the impossible ideal. Regretably, images of women in advertising have gotten worse. And contrary to the title, these images are not soft; they scream and shriek to be heard with too many people absorbing the negative messages. Please watch this 5 minute trailer of Jean Kilbourne’s latest and great version of Killing Me Softly. Maybe this time we’ll create that revolution and spare our daughters a life-time of attempting to be something they cannot and should not possibly achieve.
