Summary
Jean Kilbourne's popular video Slim Hopes offers a comprehensive analysis of advertising's depiction of bodies and food, and the devastating effect these images can have on girl's and women's health. Using numerous ads, Kilbourne shows how the prevalence of extremely thin models, in combination with advertising that encourages emotional eating, charts a clear path to disordered attitudes toward food and the body.
