GENDER ISSUES IN ADVERTISING IMPACT AND APPLICATION

ABSTRACT
This research was based on the based the topic: Gender issues in Advertisements, impact and application (a study of Joy soup). It went along way to provide clear understanding of the reasons for gender displays in advertisements, particularly the motives and outcome of the often use of the feminine gender as instruments of attraction in adverts as seen in Joy soap adverts. Advertisement is meant to gain consumer acceptance of goods through presenting the benefits of such goods and showing them what they want to see, hence the adoption of the uses and gratification theory of media in this research to explain the reasons for gender displays. Survey methods of research came into play to sample and evaluate the responses of one hundred respondents in Enugu metropolis with a well articulated questionnaire that gave answers to my research questions and brought about the following conclusions and recommendations: Advertisement is a gender issue because even though goods are advertised but men are used to gratify women and women to gratify women in order to gain the interest of both genders, So I recommend that gender displays should be encouraged but balance must be stroke, rather than negative objectification of the feminine gender in adverts as concluded through the hypotheses test results which has a greater number of respondents believing that these portrayals are seductive, making its impact morally negative. I also recommend Animations could be used as alternative to gender displays
