Women in Ads 1

What bothers me about this ad?

What bothers me about this ad?  Certainly, the words precarious and dangerous come to mind,  but why would a woman be depicted in this fashion, in this place? As in what’s up with her fashion? Or why is she wearing that,  and why should I care?

Life and oppression can be serious … so, imho, dressed in the clothes of the last 50’s and made up like drag queens, (maybe not this one, but there are many) … how does this fashion imply serious? Where is the struggle? Personally, I wouldn’t be seen hanging off a cliff in this outfit.  

I was watching the Women in the World Summit a while back … all those women on stage … the ones in dresses/skirts, most of them, were constantly pulling at their hems. Seriously, every second or two there was another woman in the panel pulling at the hem of her skirt. Is that is a kind of feminist power dressing in the 21st century?  If so, I’m going back to go playing my ukulele.   😉
