Killing Us Softly 4: Advertising's Image of Women - This most recent update of Jean Kilbourne's pioneering Killing Us Softly series features a vast array of current images from magazines and television and continues the ground-breaking critical analysis of advertising's depiction of women.

Deadly Persuasion: The Advertising of Alcohol & Tobacco - Illustrating her analysis with current advertising examples, Jean Kilbourne presents a compelling argument that the manipulative marketing strategies used by the alcohol and tobacco industries are driven by a clear and deep understanding of the psychology of anxiety and addiction.

Spin the Bottle: Sex, Lies & Alcohol - Award-winning media critics Jackson Katz and Jean Kilbourne decode the glamorized stories media tell about alcohol, and contrast them with the often disturbing and dangerous ways that alcohol consumption affects the lives of real young men and women.

Slim Hopes: Advertising & the Obsession with Thinness - This popular video featuring Jean Kilbourne offers a comprehensive analysis of how bodies and food are depicted in advertising, and the devastating effects those images can have on girls' and women's health.
