Here’s a “map” of my project:

    I absolutely hated the black and white section, especially the part with the diagram of how men and women’s brains process information. The dinner party was slightly humorous, but I certainly didn’t find the rest of it amusing in any way.

    The end was cute and inspirational. 🙂

    Sometimes it’s hard to see the gender bias in advertising when the commercials on tv are so mixed and also interspersed with the actual program you’re watching, so you tend not to concentrate on the ads themselves that much. But I was really struck by the part of your project where you had one ad after another, all having to do with household cleaners or food, and all with women as both subject and target. The way that you condensed a bunch of these ads into a minute or so was so overwhelming and really drove home the point that (I think) you’re making about the gender bias that’s perpetuated by all of these different kinds of media.

    I appreciated your providing a “map” of your project; that helped me understand the sequence of images you’d given us. I think, though, that I’m still needing yet another level of explanation–what is the logic, or the point, of the ordering? Were some of the sequences designed (not by you, but by their original makers) to be satiric? Is your whole project intended to be satiric? Were you trying to give us a randomized account of the representation of women in the media? What (in short) is your own interpretation of the material you’ve given us? (Or are you explicitly refusing to provide such an interpretation, in order to provoke our own?)
