He effectively shows that women’s advertising is often unethical and ultimately needs to stop degrading women and move to more positive ways of advertising. Although, upon digging deeper in to Cohan’s specific claims on idealized imagery advertising, a gap emerges. Cohan calls the women in the ads who have been idealized “perfect” “ideal”, women that the “average women” will never be able to look like/be (327), but in all actuality, how can advertisements, or anyone for that matter, define what is “perfect”, “average”, “pretty”, “ugly”?

They’re regular people getting on with their lives, pursuing their goals.” (Furey 1).

Media images of women have had a big part in contributing to women’s “second-class status in society” . The media has limited their contribution to both wider issues like democratic discussions and their roles in their personal lives.
