(UPI) Women Reject Their TV Commercial Image NEW YORK (UPI) - When was the last time you saw a television commercial in which • a woman held an executive position? Probably never, because companies and their ad, vertising agencies apparently ', believe men would have trouble accepting a woman in a position r of authority over men — say, as a bank loan officer. That was the theory at a recent lunch at Metropolitan Life Insurance in New York, part of "Women in Business Week" organized by the New .York Association of Women ' Business Owners. The lunch zeroed in on "The Image of Women in Television Commercials" with a presentation by the Screen ' Actors Guild. Kathleen Nolan, national president of SAG opened with a speech, in which she pointed out 46 per cent of all women l(> years and over were in the work force, while stay-at-homes "represent 25 per cenl of American women, yet they are the target group most being sought by clients and traditional marketing strategies." Part of the reason is obvious — they are the women who are at home and able to watch television during the daytime. Whether they really worry about waxy yellow buildup and cringe at the possibility of ringcround-the-collar is another matter. In song and sketches, some SAG members had fun with some old standhys, such as the man in the laundromat who approaches a housewife, tells her he "is here to prove a point," and offers her 57 cents for her mohair coat. There's the woman who confesses guiltily to her psychiatrist that, among things, she has aluminum pock marks, water spots on her glassware, severe static cling, "plus my plastic wrap keeps coming undone." Then there's the one that the SAG performers . lagged "Ihe most chauvinistic commercial on television today, in which a man, 'in patronizing tones, brags, "This is my wife, my little wife. She takes care of me..." and winds up with, "My wife — 1 think I'll keep her." The discussion then went to a panel of experts including one distinctly embarrassed male director of television commercials — Peter Israelson, Israelson admitted the parodies hit close to home, and spoke of the "gross stereotyping of American women." He made one other poinl — these commercials sell their products. Another panelist was Frances Sternhagen, who most viewers know best as Mrs. Marsh, the 'babysitter in a toothpaste commercial. She made it clear why actresses accept roles that stereotype women — they like to cat. That means the actress takes the best commercials she can get, but if the checkbook is low, it may be necessary to compromise. But there arc. limits.
