Jean Kilbourne is an American author, lecturer and filmmaker. Much like John Berger, Kilbourne critiques imagery. She started a film series with her 1979 film, "Killing Us Softly." Kilbourne illustrates how advertisements and images in pop culture perpetuate an unrealistic and unattaibale ideal of beauty and feminity. Unlike Berger, Kilbourne does highlight the misrepresentation of women of colour in advertising. One part of her analysis that is crucial to race theory and discussion is the concept of objectificaiton and dehumanization. Butler's "Precarious Life: The Powers of Mourning" similarly addresses how the west creates images of the east that are dehumanizing. By dehumanizng middle eastern people to the western audience, when unjust acts of violence are committed against these people, their bodies become ungrievable.Further, violence against these individuals becomes justfiiable because they are seen as a threat to the western world. Moreover, in many middle eastern cultures women wear the veil and are unidentifiable, because of this, they are also seen and treated by the west as inhuman and violence against women are similarily justified.
