I need some help in finding any articles/information on the damage that advertising/fashion/models has on women. How they portray women in scantily clad clothes, how they must be model thin and sickly. I am writing a paper for college and have exhausted myself in trying to find any sources written on this subject. Can you help direct me at all in the right direction? I would be ever so grateful. Thank you for any consideration in this matter. Sincerely, Rachelle

Thank you for your note. Two places to start for information regarding the negative impact advertising, etc.... has on women are:

  1. Gloria Steinem's article "Sex, Lies, and Advertising," available in her book Moving Beyond Words (Simon & Schuster, 1994)
  2. Naomi Wolf's book The Beauty Myth.

I hope these help--they also reference many other sources. Good luck.
