The film “Killing Us Softly 4: Advertising’s Image of Women” will be screened at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 30, in the UPS Auditorium in Morningside College’s Lincoln Center, 3627 Peters Ave.
Four panelists from Morningside College will participate in a discussion after the film. Members of the panel include Susan Burns, associate dean for academic affairs; Pam Mickelson, professor of business administration; Jeremy Schnieder, assistant professor of writing and rhetoric; and Morningside senior Amanda Martens.
“Killing Us Softly 4” is the newest in a series of films by Dr. Jean Kilbourne, who is internationally recognized for her examination of the image of women in advertising. The film explores gender stereotypes and how advertising may create distorted ideals of female beauty, perfection and sexuality.
The screening of “Killing Us Softly 4” is part of the Dr. R. Franklin Terry Women’s Studies Lecture and Faculty Development Series at Morningside.
