We can see this in any ad possible; fast food ads, clothing ads, and even makeup ads. Makeup ads are used to sell brands of makeup to a variety of ages ranging between teenagers through middle aged women. When looking at these ads through any era in our society there seems to be a constant theme in each era; to please the desires of men.

Jean Kilbourne (2010) in the video Killing Us Softly 4: Advertising’s image of women pointed out that people always assume the women in advertisements have the perfect look and a good figure. Many women even feel ashamed when they failed to achieve ideal beauty and retain slim figure after they saw the advertisements. I agree with her idea that the advertisement depict women in a very dangerous way. Many people started to judge women by perfect look and slim figure. These kinds of advertisements may do harm to women’s health mentally and physically, especially to teenagers, when they are trying to achieve perfect appearance as perfect women depicted in advertisements.
Heather Havrilesky sums up what is wrong with a lot of Americans in the first two paragraphs, in that we are never happy with what we have and always wanting more. If we would just step back and take it all in, we might all be surprised for at least a moment. “In show creator Matthew Weiner’s telling, the birth of the advertising age coincides directly with the birth of our discontent as a nation-and what got lost in the hustle were our souls” (Havrilesky 175).

Heather Havrilesky says “Slowly we come to view our own lives as inconsequential, grubby, even intolerable” (170). We see this as every day, as Americans

When I was 15, I started a jewelry company called Bad Ass Beads. I created my own logo, which featured the image of Rosie the Riveter. I chose to use this iconic image because I felt it symbolized a “bad ass woman”. I felt that it told my buyers that a woman can be a hard working “bad ass”, yet appreciate and embrace the feminine qualities of wearing jewelry.
