Jessica's comments on Chris' "Axe's Use of Women to get a Man's Money"

Perfect choice for this assignment.

The specific pictures you chose in your collage are really strong examples of what you are trying to convey in your paper. I personally liked your addition of the Clinton ad because it truly reinforced the fact that any woman, even those with power and status, are being reduced to a lower rank in order to sell a product.

The quote from Jhally really strengthened your argument by stating that these ads define the image of a woman as a sexual identity.

Your argument was particularly focused on females being used to sell male products, and maybe an advertisement in which a male is acting as the powerful figure while the woman is seen as 'weak' would have also strengthened the collage 'argument'.

Perhaps by adding the point that Jhally makes about nonessential products being used to transform ideas about 'what men need' would have also been appropriate.
