摘 要

女性身份建构一直以来都是国内外学者讨论的热点。随着社会经济的发展,广告已成为商业推广的重要媒介。至今国内外广告中都还或多或少的存在一些性别歧视现象,这表明在广告中女性身份的构建也还存在一些问题。为了更好地促进女性身份在英文广告中的构建,本文通过分析女性身份构建在英文广告中的一些问题以及存在原因,有针对性地从话语与身份的关系、权力与身份的关系和自我身份意识三个方面提出构建策略。希望通过本次研究启发人们对当今存在于广告中关于性别歧视问题的思考,更好地促进女性社会地位的提高和两性关系的平等。虽然国内外已有大量关于女性身份及身份建构的研究,但在英文广告领域的相关研究较少,主要集中在文学作品和影视作品中。本文主要聚焦于英文广告的语域中进行案例分析,探析如何构建广告中的女性身份。

Unavoidably, this kind of phenomenon has been embodied in language. In linguistic aspect, language is bias-based and women suffer from language sexism. In the advertisement dominated by the patriarchal culture, women are only simple aesthetic objects that exist in order to meet the aesthetic needs of men, and they are unable to express their charm and characteristics freely. In these advertising words full of gender differences, the women lost the independent personality and independent existence value, how to please men has become the embodiment of their value. These advertising words reflect the existing value concept of society to a certain extent and the long-standing sexism in the society.

That is not conducive to the realization of equality between men and women.

Secondly, the paper is conducive to proposing new advertising strategies to uncover the hidden discrimination and to combat suppression of women. Information of hidden social norms behind advertisements can also be obtained to see whether there are improvements of women’s status in modern society.
