"Our main objective now is to have more women investors because that will have a trickle-down effect. There are a lot of smart businesswomen out there." According to the Center of Women's Business Research, as of 2006, there were an estimated 7.7 million majority women-owned companies, accounting for 29.7% of all businesses in the U.S. Those companies generate $1.1 trillion in annual sales and employ 7.2 million people nationwide. Yet a separate study conducted by venture capital industry tracker VentureSource showed that only 4.3% of venture-backed companies are led by women, down from 7.5% in 2002. Women-led angel groups are trying to improve that statistic.
Advertising effects women’s image (Pro) Hello everyone. Did you know that young women between the ages of 18-34 y Burns have a 7% chance of being as skinny as a catwalk model and only a 1% chance of being as skinny as a supermodel? Advertising affects the women’s image by increasing eating disorders, changing the ideal body image of women over the years, and by creating unrealistic beauty standards.

Some researchers believe depicting thin models does not appear to have a long-term negative effect on adolescent girls but that it does affect girls who already have body image problem.
This paper will examine gender stereotyping in advertising. The examples I have found of gender stereotypes in advertising are perfume ads for Vera Wang and Giorgio Armani. As defined in the book, Transformations, “gender stereotypes are networks of related beliefs that reflect the ‘common wisdom’ about men and women,” (Crawford, 2011). The contrast between the two ads is drastic when examined closely. When glancing at the ads from a distance they would seem similar with the exception of which gender they are intended to target.

In advertising, advertisers try and appeal to consumer’s basic emotional appeals by using pictures, text, and slogans and the effects it has on consumers. I found Jib Fowles’ article on the fifteen innate emotional appeals to be effective atillustrating the subconscious actions taken by advertisers to manipulate the emotional desires of the reader. The American Airlines advertisement has taken on a very simplistic yet effective layout where a good portion of the advertisement is of a confidant woman in what seems to be some sort of uniform giving her a professional appearance. She has a warm, inviting glow on her face and is perched upon a chair. Above her left shoulder there is a text explaining the type of service that passengers will receive while flying with American Airlines, and above that in bold letters readers will find the slogan, giving the basis for this advertisement, which reads, “Think of her as Your Mother” (“A Portfolio” 488).
