Review the various advertisements presented in both chapter 9 and chapter 10 (see pages 528–534 and 590–596). How do these images work to construct social attitudes about and expectations for women and gender? Are there changes in the representation of women that you notice from decade to decade and/or compared to the present day? Refer to at least two specific advertisements in your response of at least 250 words.

Select any one image from the Visual Sources section in Chapter 8 (pages 462–474). In roughly 250 words, explain how the specific historical and cultural context of that visual artifact is critical to interpreting and understanding what the image seeks to express or represent. (You might also consider this question from the reverse angle: how might one risk misinterpreting the visual artifact if viewed out of historical context?)
