National Eating Disorder Awareness Week 2021
If you’re looking for educational resources for National Eating Disorders Awareness Week this month (Feb. 22 – Feb. 28), we want to call your attention to a special collection of MEF videos that examine the relationship between media culture and body image. From now through the end of February, we’re offering 20% off all the titles in this collection with the code NEDA21.
We especially want to call your attention to our bestselling video Killing Us Softly 4, the latest edition in Jean Kilbourne’s groundbreaking Killing Us Softly series, which recently celebrated its 40th anniversary and has become a staple in media literacy curricula around the world. The film — and its accompanying discussion guide — are remarkably effective educational tools for helping young people think critically about how images of women in advertising construct unrealistic, and ultimately dangerous, ideals of beauty.
From now through February 28th, we’re offering 20% off Killing Us Softly 4 and a range of other videos on media and body image, including Elena Rossini’s critically acclaimed film The Illusionists, which examines the globalization of hyper-commercialized Western ideals of female beauty.
