Killing Us Softly

These two videos are from a lecture that Jean Kilbourne, feminist author, speaker, and filmmaker gave regarding her fourth film on women, sexuality and the media in "Killing Us Softly 4."

Please take the time to watch these, everyone -especially the second part of the video. It has become increasingly apparent to me how fucked up our culture's mass media and advertising is and how harmful it is to women in the way that we view our bodies, our intellectual self worth, and each other. 

What do y'all think?



  1. Thank you for posting this. My school just screened MissRepresentation, so this was a good follow up.

  2. I just watched this and was so moved and intrigued. As someone who has long struggled with her body image it was very interesting to see some of my thoughts and concerns illustrated so perfectly.
