Regulation and representation: M&S November 28, 2009Posted by N.C.OnlineTraining in Uncategorized.
Great story to think about when talking about media regulation as well as representation issues here. You know that M&S Christmas ad that’s on every five minutes with “that girl prancing around in her underwear”? Well it’s currently under investigation by the ASA after a total of eight complaints were received (remember, they only need one) arguing that the ads were demeaning to women.
What’s your thoughts on this one? Would it be offensive if a female “celebrity” wanted a man prancing around in his under? Or does the exclusion of such simply help to reinforce patriarchy?
