Celebrating International Womens Day: Because we are worth it! On changes in advertising, gender and society

12 March 2020, 19:00 - 20:30
Chelmsford campus

An image of a men from the 1950's lifting a green sofa, with his wife sat on it reading a book as he vacuums underneath it, while a little girl is watching the TV.

How have men and women been portrayed in advertising – and does it matter? What can we do to change the current trends?

Based on her new book Advertising, Gender and Society, Dr Magdalena Zawisza-Riley will discuss the consequences of advertising content for you and for the society. She may even let you into the secret of whether power poses may help you deal with biased media content!
