The portrayal of women's images in magazine advertisements: Goffman's gender analysis revisited. Advertising occupies a special position within the economic organization of a modern society, and it is not just an economic entity. Advertising deals with ideas, attitudes, and values, giving them "cultural form through its signifying practices" Sinclair, Advertising as "signifying practices" gives meaning to words and images. Through this process, advertising diffuses its meanings into the belief systems of the society. As Schudson puts, the promotional culture of advertising has worked its way into "what we read, what we care about, the ways we raise our children, our ideas of right and wrong conduct, our attribution of significance to 'image' in both public and private life" p. Advertising is a social practice, and it does not operate in a vacuum. According to Jhally , the social role of advertising involves a number of interconnected relationships - "those between person and object, use and symbol, symbolism and power, and communication and satisfaction" p. Thus, advertising must be considered in light of cultural expectations. Rotzoll and Haefner argue that because of its cultural boundness, its complexity of forms and functions, and the difficulty in ascertaining its outcome, advertising is highly prone to disparate interpretations. As Hall illustrates, the concept of "shared meanings" places its emphasis on cultural practices.

The findings by 7 categories are presented in Table III. Height relationships between males and females in magazine advertisements has not changed since The mean stereotyping score for was.

There was no significant difference by year. The feminine touch category shows no difference in the mean stereotyping scores between and Function ranking has seemed to cease in most modern business advertising, since not many advertisements showed men and women in a social hierarchy. However, the mean stereotyping scores by year were not significantly different. Goffman catalogued actions that made women subordinate such as lowering of a female body part as in deference, females lying down, the bashful knee bend, canting postures, and expansive smile.

Magazine advertisements in and showed very close mean stereotyping scores. Licensed withdrawal relates to women often not being fully within the action or the scene, but instead gazing off or self-absorbed, or, more importantly, seemingly "lost" or "mentally drifting.

The question of whether magazine advertising contains more suggestive and provocative sexual content in than in was answered. The finding that women in were more often depicted in "sexy" dress or nude than in implies that the advertising industry has become interested in more sexually explicit and provocative portrayals of women in magazine advertising. The mean stereotyping scores between and were not significantly different in this category.

The findings indicate that the images of women in advertisements did not significantly change from the images found in advertisements. However, distribution or dispersion of stereotypical portrayal of women did change.

In the categories of licensed withdrawal and body display, the magazine advertisements from showed more stereotyping of women than those from Two of Goffman's categories - Relative Size and Function Ranking - were not prevalent depictions in magazine advertisements.

Overall, many advertisements showed only females or males rather than the two genders together or a family scene. This might mean that advertisements are frequently targeting more specific audiences.

Goffman and the relations of power in the daily life

Advertisements for cosmetics-typically the products associated with the sexiest female images - have begun to feature more powerful and independent female gender displays. As shown in this research, the process of change in advertising images is a slow one. Print media advertisements analyzed in this study appear to be slow in changing the traditional demeaning roles of women.

Investigations of women's magazines corroborated this assertion. At first, only superficial cultural alterations are transferred to advertisements, while "the underlying ideological foundation remains untouched" Umiker-Sebeok, , p.

Advertisements are conservative and tied to the prevailing ideology of the culture. There has not been much change in the portrayal of women in advertising, perhaps because advertising has this powerful role: to depict women not necessarily how they actually behave, but rather, how we think women behave. Furthermore, according to Goffman, this depiction serves the social purpose of convincing us that this is how women are, or want to be, or should be.

It seems that only superficial cultural alterations are transferred to advertisements, while the underlying ideological foundation remains untouched.

The results of this study are not very surprising, since magazine advertisements are not meant to serve as social primers enumerating the cultural rules of correct and proper behavior. They are merely designed to naturalize people and things in such a way as to maximize demand by defining social relations in terms of the consumption of goods and services.

Using women in a sexist tone in advertisements has more profound social implications. If the media do mold expectations, opinions, and attitudes, then the audience of these ads may accept the way women are depicted as reality.

What may be needed is the portrayal of women in roles that actually reflect their perceived attributes and their individuality.

One important goal of this study has been to investigate the changes of stereotyped images of women in women's magazines between and by using the Goffman's gender behaviors as a conceptual basis. Comparing advertisements from Goffman's era to more modern dates is a way to expose changes in the meaning system about gender. This study shows that some gender behaviors reported by Goffman - such as the "height relationship," "conducting the instructing role," and "maintaining telephone conversation" - are no longer prevalent in modern magazine advertisements.

Two categories - relative size and function ranking - were found so seldom, the categories could be considered to no longer apply. Therefore, one may suggest that the overall findings of this study were consistent with Goffman's findings except in two categories mentioned above. This study indicates that gender behaviors displayed in magazine advertisements have not changed much since Goffman's findings. A few additional studies logically follow from this study. The first would use the magazine advertisements and would examine the way men are depicted in them.

A comparison between the results of the two studies would reveal the differences in the representation of men and women in advertising. The second would be a cross-cultural comparison between cultures e. New York: Macmillan Publishing Company. Babbie, E. The Practice of Social Research. Belmont, CA: Wadsworth. Ball, M.
