Jean Kilbourne is internationally known for her pioneering work on alcohol and tobacco advertising and the image of women in advertising. Through her illustrated lectures & her award-winning films and publications, Kilbourne explores the serious cumulative impact of advertising on individual attitudes, values, & behavior and on the society as a whole. With expert knowledge, insight, humor and commitment, she brings her audiences to see that, although ads may seem harmless and silly, they add up to a powerful form of cultural conditioning. Kilbourne is known for her ability to present provocative topics in a way that unites rather than divides, that encourages dialogue, and that moves and empowers people to take action in their own and society’s interest. She is the creator of the award winning documentary film, Killing us Softly: Advertising’s Image of Women.
