Adults, on Wednesday, June 13 at 2:30 PM, join us in welcoming Sally Ann Drucker, living historian, portraying Betty Friedan.
Betty Friedan (February 4, 1921 -- February 4, 2006) was an American writer, activist, and feminist. Her writings, advocacy, and leadership were instrumental to the second wave of American feminism.
In this presentation, Sally Ann Drucker will discuss the portrayal of women in advertising media. Attendees will watch some advertising video clips and then examine how they depict women. We'll ask each other how these images affect the ways women see themselves and the ways they are seen by others. Do these ads influence more than the marketplace? Are there problems in today's society that might be caused by these images?
This event is free and open to the public.
