History of advertising

Hey everyone,

I am looking for websites that show how women have been depicted in advertisements throughout time. I am especially looking for older advertisements (1920s-1990s) that focus on health and nutrition advertisements.

I'm supposed to do a historical-comparative analysis on a topic of my choice so I think this is what I'm going to aim for: how food and dieting has been portrayed throughout the ages.

I also have a few other ideas in mind revolving around body image, such as looking at the importance of Barbie and the image she has carried throughout the ages. I've also thought about looking at hygiene and makeup throughout the ages since I have access to an advertising database which focuses on these things.

Any help or suggestions for topics would be appreciated. Please respond before Wednesday the 17th.

Thank you
