Advertisers sell their products in a that objects women, because it catches the attention of a male consumer, but it also charms the female consumer because it can make her look like the ideal figure of a perfect woman. The irony in this idea is that the “perfect women” or the ideal woman with the unblemished skin, perfect figure and perfect hair does not exist. Kilbourne also stated in her talk series that “women learn from an early age that they have to have a perfect figure. I personally do not think it is possible for a woman to possess all the perfect characteristics and features at the same time. All throughout different kinds of advertisements on television, magazines, etc., our culture has been molded to believe that there is a such thing as a perfect woman which is nearly impossible to become no matter how hard one tries.
“From children 's toys to TV programs, images of the ‘ideal’ body have permeated every level of our visual culture” (Swinson). I think that this is so important in today’s society because people are comparing themselves to a person that is essentially fake.

In the Bobbi Brown advertisment, Katie Holmes is centered radiating confidence and has eyes that draw the consumer further into the ad. Her makeup and lightly curled hair are kept natural in order to allow the reader to truly see the effects of the foundation.
Nioxin claims to be a powerful solution to thinning hair. Looking at how long the company has served her customers, I believe that they should be on top of their game and also looking at them being acquired by a giant company like Proctor and Gamble, this has added more feathers to their wings. I could find both positive and negative reviews about Nioxin brand. It seems they (the products) will achieve their claims and promises. For a fact, there is no clinical or scientific evidence that shows how safe and effective these products are.
She also reasons that “Sugar can improved my health, folks. Nothing else changed. It was the sugar.” Now Konie uses a lot of unproven opinions in this accusation that sugar makes you healthy. Even though she uses her very own experience to connect with the audience, it is very uncredible, and she doesn’t giver nay evidence to her issue. Finally, in the very last paragraph Konie is very persuasive with ending with a great rhetorical question stating “…are you willing to listen to your body?” This is very effective in getting the audience to think about the main topic of this article.

Therefore, his term paper aims to analyze advertisements by Dove semiotically as well as to compare them, especially focusing on the depiction of women and how it changed with the launch of Dove’s ‘Campaign for Real Beauty’.
The show 's not filmed in Cinemascope”, Tracy is able to keep a positive body image as she sees herself as a role model for other women that are big boned as she responded to Amber’s statement “I 'm sure many of the other home viewers out there are pleasantly plump or chunky”. Although Tracy does want to appear beautiful and attractive to viewers( and the boys of the show), she does not feel that she must be thin to appear so as she stays to Edna (her mother), “Finally all of Baltimore knows I am big, blond, and beautiful!”.

They become so influenced by the glamorous lifestyle, to the point of being empowered to imitate their ways. Take for example Kim Kardashian, an American reality television personality. She rose to fame from constantly exposing her body to the public’s eye. In this way, she has empowered some women to be like her, to gain a certain amount of fame and popularity by following in their footsteps or taking similar paths. She influences young women in particular to expose and embrace their body, to accept the wearing of corset to achieve that coco-cola bottom shape body so much that many are willing to get plastic surgery to fit within this category.
That moral lesson is to accept things the way they are and value them, people should be satisfied with what they are given by nature, not try to change anything because trying to change things to the way we would like them to be, can often destroy them.
