In the 1990s something happened to public awareness campaigns; they became interesting. No longer advice-laden missives, campaign materials became eye-catching and thought provoking. During this decade, one campaign was hugely influential in its impact on a number of different levels; this campaign was Zero Tolerance. The campaign has promulgated a rash of copycat images not only from campaigns on other issues but also mainstream advertisers. Governments, initially surprised by the impact of feminist-led campaigns, have started to show interest in this transformation of a form of communication that has been around for a long time.

Public-awareness campaigns have attracted interest, not only from government but also within academia. Political science, communication studies, criminology, psychology and sociology have all examined public-awareness campaigns and usually the focus is on the impact and influence of campaigns on individuals and society (Leiss, 1987). Rather than simply examining the effectiveness of campaigns, this article questions why campaigns are seen as socially necessary. It is not enough to consider how the message is received, of equal importance is how it is conceived (Burton, 1990). A critical approach is important in uncovering the exercise of power contained within campaigns.

Campaign messages are not neutral. They are socially constructed and represent vested interests. Friere (1970) has argued that knowledge is created through the human act of ‘naming’ but ‘naming’ is not a process of objectively describing some ‘truth’ but rather an expression of a particular viewpoint. Any critical theory must therefore consider the context of knowledge creation and as Smith (1978) highlights, the context of knowledge production has traditionally excluded women from participation. Instead, governments and corporate bodies have dominated knowledge production, generally for economic and political purposes.

Certainly, companies and organisations have used visual images to promote their goods and services since the birth of advertising (Leiss, 1987). From leaflets and posters to radio and TV, advertising can increase awareness and inform the public. There is little doubt that advertising has become increasingly sophisticated during the latter half of the twentieth century, however, advertising is not usually seen an effective tool for conveying complex issues or promoting attitudinal change (Benady, 1994). Although public awareness campaigns use many of the strategies of advertising to get the message across, often relying on images and slogans to promote their message, the aim of a campaign is not to sell a product but to sell an idea, challenge existing behaviour and so effect change.

Chris Baker, convenor of judges of the IPA Advertising Effectiveness Awards has argued that advertising strategies are more effective on social issues than on the sale of frozen peas. While everyone has an opinion on peas, concepts are harder to pin down and attitudes can be shifted if emotions are aroused within the target audience (cited in Benady, 1994).

For campaigns on social issues, a simple but focussed message is often the most effective form of communication (Leiss, 1987). Messages need to be clear, concise and relevant. It is through the use of simple images and snappy slogans that the public absorbs the message. This can open the door to public debate and help the ideas behind the slogans gain political legitimacy (Pahl, 1985).

It is assumed that the intentions of public-awareness campaigns are benevolent (DETR, 1997). They are to warn of harm, to protect citizens and preserve rights and freedoms. The state as ‘protector’, uses public-awareness campaigns to communicate, inform and educate the public. This article examines the emergence of public awareness campaigns and of primary interest is why the state should, in the face of competing social needs, provide the enormous resources necessary in mounting campaigns? But it is important to bear in mind that campaigns are political vehicles, used to convey ideological messages (Gamman & Marshment, 1988; Baeher & Gray, 1996). Whatever the focus or subject matter, traditionally campaigns have focused on controlling behaviour, creating order and securing social consensus; there is a design, constructed to convey a message to a particular audience. Generally, campaigns emerge out of social concern or even crisis. Put simply, the aim of most campaigns is control a particular social problem, making it easier for the state to function, be it on a local or national level.

The article also examines how campaign materials identify and communicate with its target audience. Fundamentally, if a campaign fails to speak effectively to those who most need the message, then the message will be lost. Of particular interest therefore is the interaction between the campaign development and existing knowledge and research.

Campaigns are not a new phenomenon. Posters used to instil moral ‘norms’ and promote collective action were evident during the Second World War and the propaganda machine specifically targeted women to ‘do their bit’ (Colman, 1995; Hanson, 1996; Dougherty Delano, 2000). Women became the targets of campaigns, which sought to highlight their social position and their social responsibilities. More recently, ‘drink-driving’ campaigns, generally assumed to be gender neutral, illustrate how campaigns develop over time. But a consequence of the political dominance driving public-awareness campaigns, is that other sources of knowledge are often ignored or made senseless as they ‘do not fit’ within the logic of the existing system. These ‘subjugated knowledges’ (Foucault, 1980), including those from a feminist perspective, risk marginalisation. The state’s role within drink driving campaigns is accepted as legitimate, seen as part of a crime prevention initiative. By comparison, crimes against women have until recently been seen as individualistic acts, not a societal problem (Stanko, 1985; Kelly, 1988).

Whilst public-awareness campaigns endorsed by the state may appear ideologically neutral, the Zero Tolerance Campaign’s feminist background was never denied (Foley, 1993; Kitzinger & Hunt, 1994). The Zero Tolerance campaign, was (and remains) concerned with change, through challenging traditional views and pointing out the lie that lurks beneath the claim of social equality between the sexes. Three factors remain central to the power of the Zero Tolerance campaign. Firstly its grounding in a feminist understanding of male violence against women, secondly its consistency of approach and finally its repetition of its simple basic message.

Campaigns as propaganda

plu1

Knowledge creation is never divorced from human interest (Habermas, 1971). The ideas and images used within public-awareness campaigns are manufactured for a purpose, generally to create a world that explains and justifies action. Such use of knowledge constitutes an exercise of power. Certainly, if the intention of public-awareness campaigns were merely to inform, there would be no concern for potential behavioural or attitudinal change. By selecting the information included in such campaigns, the ideological imperatives of the knowledge producers and controllers determines the distribution of knowledge. The messages are not necessarily for the ‘good’ of the recipients but rather suit the purposes of the message producers (Jowett & O’Donnell, 1986).

 

 

An example of how public awareness campaigns have been used to capture the hearts and minds of the public is the propaganda war fought during the Second World War. In the UK and the US, governments launched campaigns aimed to stir up patriotism and secure public support. The posters used generally took one of two forms, the ‘can do’ and the ‘don’t do’; the former used images of fearless individuals, strong and confident, while the latter played on public fear and concerns.

For many women, acute wartime labour shortage provided the first opportunity to participate in the workforce (Woollacott, 1994; Summerfield, 1995). More than that, it has been argued that “The conditions for the renewal of feminism … were provided by the Second World War” (Meehan, 1985:35). ‘Can do’ publicity campaigns were particularly aimed at women who had never before held jobs but, far from being feminist in nature, the images used sought to glamorise the jobs, accentuating the feminine qualities of the women performing them.

Of all the images used on posters at this time, perhaps the most famous was that of Rosie the Riveter–the patriotic female factory worker; she was tough but she still had her lipstick and mascara (Colman, 1995). The message for women was that the compromise between femininity and employment was achievable. She was described as “…the symbol of a generation of American women who rolled up their sleeves and went to work during World War II. Rosie the Riveter, red bandanna wrapped about her head, embodied the “We Can Do It” spirit” (Hanson, 1996:44). The ‘can do’ poster was directed at young women, generally unmarried, who could do the work until the men came back, at which time they would presumably be expected to settle down to domesticity, hand the jobs back to the men and have babies.

What view of reality is being proposed here? The state needed women in the workforce and in this respect the posters were reassuring women that they could ‘do it’. But at the same time, there was concern that gender roles should not become too blurred. It was one thing to exploit their labour but the state did not really want women to secure any long lasting social liberation. Women might be able to work but they would work within male defined confines. Recruiting women into the workforce whilst painting a picture (quite literally) of how women should look, meant that their role as ‘women’ was not changing and that their labour was not meant to threaten the status quo.

Such posters served to set the agenda around the labour shortage. By making women feel responsible for doing ‘their bit’, attention could be diverted away from government activity. Writing in America, Margaret Mead (1946), argued that women experienced the war not in a collective sense, but as individuals, through the absence of the men they loved. But the poster propaganda, by focusing on local problems (labour shortage), diverted public attention and debate away from issues such as foreign policy, military spending and war crimes. The call to patriotic duty re-enforced the ideological message that the whole population was pulling in the same direction (Summerfield, 1995).

By comparison, the ‘don’t do’ posters were designed to startle and provoke people out of their indifference with images and messages that were meant to be shocking. The posters pointed to the enemy within and this enemy was likely to be a woman. Many of the posters played on the fears held by the public. ‘Walls have ears’and ‘careless talk costs lives’ ensured that the public was aware of its duty to safeguard against enemy spies. Rupp argues that a “new woman” with strong sense of citizenship emerged, “She wore simple clothes and sensible shoes, used lipstick, powder and fixed her hair in a short, smooth, neat style, and did not indulge as much as she had before the war in coffee drinking, smoking or gossiping.” (1978:145-6)

But for all that they were still ordinary women, someone’s wife or mother and that is how they were depicted, but the text informs the public that she has cost lives through her ‘careless talk’. The design of this poster, using a photograph of an ordinary looking woman and text which is provocative, gave an uncompromising message and it is the incongruity of the image and the text that has impact.

The emotional appeal of the messages contained in the posters, the simplicity of the slogans and compelling nature of the images highlights the ready acceptance of what would now be called a ‘sound bite’. This visual media helped to make sense of severe social disruption and not only gave women a role in securing the safety of the country but also acted to re-enforce their femininity at the same time.

The impact of such campaigns should not be under-estimated. The re-enforcement of gender stereotypes, the promotion of public anxiety and the construction of a patriotic moral consensus reduced the potential for dissent and social unrest. But despite the aim of promoting social cohesion, public-awareness campaigns also provoked social change (Rowbotham, 1973; Braybon & Summerfield, 1987). Women, the primary target of the campaigns, took on social responsibilities, which after the war, many women were either reluctant or unable to discard. Working women do not simply produce goods but also produce a cultural identity. Butler has argued how gender is constituted through performance; that gender identities gain their power through “a stylized repetition of acts.”(1990:140). Campaign developers, perhaps unwittingly, were responsible for more than just the behavioural change of individual women over a limited time period. The transformation of women’s social position may have been unintentional but it was real. After the war, this type of propaganda was replaced with theories on childcare (Bowlby, 1953), which urged women to stay at home. Although many women returned to domesticity after the war, their potential and ability had been publicly recognised and their awareness raised. It was the discontent of women’s lives, identified by Friedan in The Feminine Mystique (1963), which heralded the second wave of feminism.

The Media War on Women’s Bodies

I think that most women who have survived male violence (and the accompanying justice system) are accustomed to reading the papers and having a little weep from time to time.  I know I do; not from sadness, but from anger and frustration.  I cry when I read how we are portrayed in the mainstream media.  I cry at the snide little insinuations, the implicit message that we are all just whores on the make.  Although the papers are often unable to identify us unless we oblige them by dying, they have their own little ways of making their feelings about women who have the audacity to complain about male behaviour crystal clear.  But just lately, it seems to me that things are getting worse, in the papers and in the courts. 

To start with, it seems that women cannot avoid having their actions counted against them and used to hold them accountable for the behaviour of the men around them.  There was the case of the woman in the RAF, where a fellow officer had drunkenly gotten into bed with her and grabbed at her.  He was cleared of sexual assault as she had been flirting with him earlier in the evening, which is of course a clear way of saying 'get into my bed and scare the life out of me'.

Then there was the delightful-sounding Quinten Hann, a professional snooker player who was cleared of his assault on two women as, of course, they had gone back to his house, they must have known they'd be expected to be up for it.  Not only that, but one of then had then had the audacity to sell her story to the press: assault against two women on the grounds that one of them had sold her story to the press: Snooker ace cleared of sex attack

I don’t have any legal qualifications myself, but I was under the impression that, in this country, we judged cases on the pure facts of what occurred at the relevant time.  Indeed, I’m assuming that it is this presumption that prevented previous accusations of rape made against Mr Hann being revealed.  How strange that a jury is allowed to draw inferences from a woman’s behaviour after the fact, yet are not allowed to know if the man in question makes a habit of harassing women. 

Then there was the policeman who was found guilty of manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility, as he claims his wife had 'bragged' about having another bloke.  He got 8 years; one month for each of the 96 stab wounds he inflicted on her while their children slept next door.  In this case, it struck me that it’s funny how in rape cases we’re always hearing misogynist woman bashers moaning about acquaintance rape ‘well, it’s just one person’s word against another’s, isn’t it?’, as Graham Jones’ entire defence was built upon a remark he claimed his dead wife had made to him and him alone.  Seems it’s perfectly ok to administer justice on ‘one person’s word against another’s’ if it so happens that the other person is dead and unable to defend themselves.  Killer Won't Quit Force

All these things are bad enough, but to women like us, the survivors of male violence, they are just so much cultural white noise, that buzzing in the background that serves as a constant reminder that we are dirty, lying sluts who are probably making it all up cos we’re malicious, don’t you know?  Yes, these news stories depressed and appalled me, but what really left me gasping for breath was the shocking hypocrisy shown when the very same tabloids who print these salacious, nudge-nudge accounts of brutal attacks on women went into moral outrage overdrive about the brutal attack on Abigail Witchalls, who was left paralysed after being stabbed while out and about with her toddler. 

Now, what happened to Abigail Witchalls and her small son was truly terrible, but the papers’ hysteria sticks in my craw somewhat.  After all, can these people not see that all we have here is an extension of the war on women's bodies that these same papers help perpetuate with their extremely biased reporting of violence towards women who may be less angelically pure than the saintly Mrs Witchalls?  When he raised his knife to her neck, Mrs Witchalls' attacker did not know she was a good Catholic woman and adored wife; to him she was just a piece of meat, and, despicable though this viewpoint is, it is completely unsurprising to me that a young man growing up in Britain today would think in such a way.  I would say it is even encouraged by the way women are dehumanized by the press, by their partners, by passing men in the street every day. 

I feel that people are deliberately missing the point.  If there was as much day-to-day violence between any other discrete groups as there is between men and women, we would be being told that there is open warfare on the streets.  As it is, everyone says 'how terrible', and then looks the other way when you ask them to see the bigger picture. 

It makes me think: when are we going to see violence against women classified as the hate crime it is, as racist and homophobic attacks are?  Would it be SO unreasonable to have this tide of (it seems to me) unprecedented violence against women punished as are hate crimes, and have ‘gender-based violence’  taken into account as an 'aggravating' factor when sentencing these wastes of sperm and egg?  Yes it'll be difficult to prove, yes it'll be controversial, but the laws of a country are indicative of what that country's society finds acceptable and unacceptable, and at the minute we are saying to our men: 'come and have a go if you think you're hard enough, I probably asked for it anyway'.  This has to STOP!!!!

10 Solutions For Coping With Hidradenitis

If you or anyone you love suffers from Hidradenitis, you will empathise
with the difficulties of this condition. Looking for the best natural hidradenitis suppurativa solution to
counter this extremely painful condition can be exhausting and
daunting. This is apart from having to look at the annoying abscesses
that come with it. This skin condition definitely causes a bit of grief.
Just how can it be explained? Are there answers out there for
sufferers, since it’s usually less in the spotlight?

Hidradenitis may seem like another annoying growth spurt. Its symptoms are:

1. Abrupt scarring – Hidradenitis, also known as Hidradenitis Suppurativa,
is characterized by sudden scarring on a person’s skin, particularly in
more private areas like the armpits, groin and buttocks. The condition
affects the skin’s sebaceous or sweat glands. These scars can be as
small as peas, or in the worst case scenario, as large as huge tennis
balls.

2. Pus and pain – This condition makes its ugly appearance
after puberty in the form of ordinary, harmless blackheads. As it
worsens, these enlarge with pus and become extremely painful. The pain
is chronic because these scars have an irritating tendency not to heal.

3. A foul odor – When burst, abscesses give off a rather offensive smell.

Hidradenitis
is often misdiagnosed and underreported, because very little is known
about its causes. These are still being researched. Still, we know that
about one in every hundred people suffers from it because:

1. he
is post pubescent – Those who are post pubescent tend to suffer more
from this condition because their apocrine or sweat glands tend to be
clogged up by excess sebum.

2. he perspires too much – Excess sweat tends to trigger the production of excess sebum, causing clogging and thus scarring.

3.
he has other autoimmune conditions – Individuals who suffer from
Hidradenitis may have other autoimmune diseases like Celiac Disease or
Diabetes Melitus. Their cells tend to respond against themselves because
they don’t recognize them.

Their bodies’ immune systems are weaker, making any of their scars chronic and less able to heal.

4.
he may be experiencing androgen dysfunction – Androgen refers to any
steroid compounds that control the maintenance and development of the
body’s male characteristics. The best known of these, of course, is
testosterone.

When the production of these hormones start to go
awry, it can cause other problems like excess sweating. This makes it
easier for conditions like Hidradenitis to develop. The pain caused by
the painful scarring can irritate severely. To a lesser or smaller
extent, it can debilitate. Socially, the ugly appearance of abscesses
and their foul odor can be offensive to others around the sufferer.

Though
this may be a lesser known condition, there are still solutions
sufferers can look to to make their lives easier. It entails making a
few lifestyle changes that include:

1. quitting smoking –
Quitting the smoking habit will improve your health, immunity and
quicken the healing process for irritated scars and tissue.

2.
wearing loose clothing – Wearing clothing that’s too tight will increase
sweating and increase the production of sebum in the sweat glands. It
increases friction and more pain in affected areas.

3. avoid
shaving – It may be tempting to shave affected areas, but doing so
actually causes more friction and makes the condition worse.

4. Apply cold compresses – Ice packs reduce inflammation in affected areas and act as analgesics that relieve pain.

5.
Consume Omega Acids – Fish and omega supplements will provide the
positive fatty acids necessary to fight against the painful inflammation
of Hidradenitis.

6. Cut down red meat – Conversely, red meats
like beef and duck should be avoided. These have saturated fats that
raise acid levels and increase inflammation.

7. Be more regular
with Vitamin C – Vitamin C is what is needed to boost a body’s immune
system. Having more of it will promote the healing of painful abscesses.

8.
Take time out – Stress raises blood pressure and consequently,
inflammation. Take a little time out and seek support from trusted
friends and loved ones if the condition is too much to bear.

9.
Lose weight – Relieve yourself of excess weight, because heaviness
generates more perspiration and increases body odor. It makes the
treatment of the condition much harder.

10. Use natural remedies -
Applying a little Tea Tree Oil helps to reduce inflammation caused by
Hidradenitis. Other natural ingredients like turmeric, black pepper and
coconut oil may help as well.

Hidradenitis is a painful
condition, but there are a few things that can be done to alleviate it
and make living with it easier.

Simple Strategies On How To Create Good Quality Web Design

The design of a website greatly influences its popularity. You should use a professional design agency cardiff based if you are looking to make an impact.  When you create a site that is user-friendly and appealing it will help to ensure that visitors spend time on your site, return in the future, and refer friends. If you have a bad looking website though, people may just go elsewhere without even trying to look at content. Heed the advice below to help you design an attractive and functional website.

You should always be on the lookout for new information from various forums that can help you learn how to start out or gain more knowledge with web design. You can just do a quick google search and find the information that you want to learn right on the web for free.

You want to have a site that is easy to navigate, if you want to attract visitors. You should have links that are easy to find, as well as displayed well. You can also make navigating your site easier with a menu. Make sure that links to your main pages are on each page in your site so people can find their way no matter where they are.

Avoid using frames. Most sites have abandoned frames on their own as better alternatives have become available, but there are still sites out there that are trapped in 1996. Alternatives to navigational frames include fixed-position navigation panels, having navigation in multiple areas (e.g. left and bottom) or simplifying page structure so that navigational links are never far away.

Always mark files that must be opened in an external program with an icon. Many sites host PDF files, and less commonly, DOC files, that must be opened in Foxit Reader and Microsoft Word/OpenOffice, respectively. These files should be marked with an icon representing the file type, and a link to download the appropriate viewer if the user does not have it.

Always ensure you are giving meaningful feedback, as this is what creates the communication between a website and its visitors. For example, if an action taken by a visitor results in an error, do not simply display “error occurred.”� Instead, provide a message that explains what happened and how the visitor can correct the error by taking a different action. Without this feedback, visitors are more likely to grow frustrated and just give up by leaving your website.

To get repeat visitors, use an e-mail newsletter. Letting customers subscribe to updates and new information can keep them coming back. You can incorporate a form in the sidebar of the site and track users that sign up. Stay on the ethical path and only send newsletters to users who request them.

When designing your site, try to come up with three or four keywords that you expect users to input into search engines as they try to find your page. These keywords should then be repeated frequently throughout the title, page body and description meta tag. This will make it easier for users to locate your site on the web.

Minimize the amount of clicking or scrolling visitors must do to access information. The more a user has to click or scroll around to find the information they seek, the more likely they are to give up looking for it. Aim for having at least 400 words on every page of your site by combining pages that have content that falls below this number of words.

If you want to have a successful website, you must have a professional design. A good design is integral to attracting consistent traffic to your site. Conversely, making poor web design choices will depress your site’s traffic and discourage repeat visitors. Use the web design strategies you just learned to significantly boost the chance that your website will succeed.
