My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Title: Gender Advertisements
Author: Erving Goffman
Num. of Pages: 94 pages
Published: February 1988
As the title suggests, this book is about gender advertisement. Meaning that it covers the use of genders' potrayal in advertisements.
I "accidentally" read this book as I was helping my friend with his paper. I found it quite interesting. I never know that when women lay on the bed/couch/sofa in a photograph, it suggests a "sexual readiness".
There are many picture example that helped me to understand the points the author made. An interesting reading.
This book is for the following reading challenge:
