According to a survey done by Jesse Fox, Ph.D., 80% of women feel bad about themselves just by looking in the mirror (Dreisbach). This has happened because of social media being changed to make girls feel like they need to have a certain body shape. Models and celebrities in magazines and media show unrealistic beauty and it contributes to eating disorders, depression, anxiety, and much more (Seventeen magazine). Media has put lots of stress on women throughout history with changing body shapes. A survey done by Dove found results that 9 out of 10 women want to change at least one aspect of their physical appearance. Social media even makes girls compare themselves to their peers, instead of just to celebrities. In turn, it makes girls feel
Many people are familiar with the phrase, “Just Do It.” This slogan stands out immediately and a swoosh or check mark comes to mind. Nike is one of the most widely known clothing and shoe companies across the country. During a Nike advertisement there are three rhetorical strategies that are displayed when shown on a commercial. Those three main ideas are pathos, ethos, and logos. Nike draws in peoples’ attention and gets viewers to agree with them and buy their product with the help of these three factors. Nike is a very successful company because of how they draw in their audience and display their commercials using ethos, pathos, and logos.

The commercial published by Chevrolet in 2014 is an exceptional advertisement. This commercial advertises the Chevy Silverado truck. However, this commercial does not only influence the audience to purchase a truck but; the advertisement portrays a life lesson that every person should know and practice. The commercial by Chevrolet titled, “A Boy and His Dog,” is extremely effective and persuasive to the audience through emotion, ethics, and logical situations.
Milk is refreshing, muscle building, and nutritious. “Got milk?” uses this advertisement to get this point across. It consists of Taylor Swift, whose portrait is in the center of the ad, flirtingly leaning on her dark red guitar lined with a light tan rim. Her smooth pale face is slightly tilted to the right as she is seductively gazing into the camera with her starry brown eyes. She has a gentle, small, pearly white smile, which is adorned with the white stain of milk. She is wearing large hoop earrings, one of which is covered by her slight hand, leaning on her graceful neck, and a silk bracelet. Both are jewel studded and colored light brown to compliment her blondish tan spaghetti strap dress that matches her flowing slightly curly golden
“Maybe she’s born with it. Maybe it’s Maybelline.” This slogan has been heard in every Maybelline makeup commercial and presents its viewers with women with unrealistically long eyelashes, flawless skin and fully glossed lips. But have we ever stopped to consider the message that these commercials entail? Could these Maybelline models have stumbled upon a full face of makeup that could be mistaken as a natural look? The media portrays these unrealistic standards to men and women of how women should look, which suggests that their natural face is not good enough. Unrealistic standards for beauty created by the media is detrimental to girls’ self-esteem because it makes women feel constant external pressure to achieve the “ideal look”, which indicates that their natural appearance is inadequate.

Men and women nowadays are starting to lose self-confidence in themselves and their body shape, which is negatively impacting the definition of how beauty and body shape are portrayed. “...97% of all women who had participated in a recent poll by Glamour magazine were self-deprecating about their body image at least once during their lives”(Lin 102). Studies have shown that women who occupy most of their time worrying about body image tend to have an eating disorder and distress which impairs the quality of life. Body image issues have recently started to become a problem in today’s society because of social media, magazines, and television.
The name of the company, Coca Cola, is considered ethos because has a history of credibility. Pathos is another important aspect of the ad where it appeals to its audience’s emotions by accessing a current situation in the United States and by promoting certain values like optimism, humanity, and unity. It shows various ways people enjoy their product and how it brings them together despite their cultural differences like riding horses, going to the movie theater with friends, going to the beach, dancing, spending time with family, etc. Last of all, logos is represented at the end of the commercial where the company’s logo and slogan are
In a society that is heavily influenced by mass media, women are repeatedly compartmentalized into unrealistic, and often degrading standards of appearance and sexuality. Doris Bazzini’s research on magazines and Caroline Heldman’s blog explores themes related to a woman’s appearance, while Jessica Valenti elaborates on the concept of virginity in her essay titled, “The Purity Myth”. Despite the diversity in scope when it comes to womanhood, there is a numerous set of expectations that a female must fit in order to be “ideal”. However, this checklist is so specific and debasing that it renders the criteria useless. The three main pre-requisites in being the ideal woman include physical attractiveness, sexual accessibility, and purity. The pressure
As a little girl you are encouraged to be who you want to be. You fill your world with fairy tales or Barbie dolls that inspire you to believe that the sky is the limit. But little do you know, that as you grow older, the dreams you are forging for yourself is no longer achievable. Where you once saw the sky as the limit is now transformed to be seen as a man’s word as the limit. No little girl, you are not liberated nor are you empowered…you are simply propagated by a man’s world to believe that you are. But where did it all start and how did you get to this position?
When talking about environment in general, we think of the surrounding things that have an ability to affect. Same is applied with marketing environment. Marketing environment is the collection of all of the surrounding actors and forces that have the power to affect the company 's ability to do its job in having good relationship with target customers and satisfying their needs (Kotler, Armstong, Tolba, Habib, (2011).
It was a warm spring morning in May when my mother and father headed to the hospital to give birth to a little girl. On May 18th, 1998 at 7:34 a.m. I, Allison Michelle Keitel, was born. A lot has changed in these past 18 years, but growing up in a time period between “the good old day” and technology was one of the best generations to live during. Getting to roll around in mud with my siblings and playing outside everyday was one of my favorite memories, however, my generation is also the first generation to grow up with technology. We were born in an era of change. All of the changes I have encountered in my 18 years of living have shaped me into the woman I am today. Since 1998, the perception of women has changed the most. Women have always had this pressure to have the “perfect” look, until our generation has been changing the way women feel forever.
