MEDIAWATCH FOR FEBRUARY - As of 2/24/02


Menstuff® reports on what the press and/or some corporations are saying for February. Also, see comments for January 02, December, November, October, and September and Archive for our response to the media's portrayal of men. Often a click on the photo will present a larger picture.

After reviewing some of these topics, we encourage you to write the corporations and the government and give them your viewpoint. Change doesn't usually take place when only one complaint is received. If you want to be part of the solution, let them hear from you! Here's how.

BECAUSE THE MOMENT MATTERS


Mireni is a remarkably effective and safe method of birth control for moms. Let you wife know and suggest a talk with her health care provider.

RESPECT YOURSELF IN THE MORNING


This ad appeared in a men's magazine, Men's Health. What's the point? That a lot of women read the ads in Men's Health? That I'm going to "Respect myself in the morning" by looking at an attractive woman with two cinamin roles glued to her butt? That it's actually going to encourage me to eat Nutri-Grain?  I don't think so. Mainly because Kellogg's has become tasteless.

CAMPAIGN TO END THE USE OF LAND MINES 


Newsflash: Change that number to "...every 20 minutes..." An extra 2,044 civilians died last year because of the land mines. That represents only 26,000 deaths last year. They've got another 99,974,000 to find and trigger. Planning your vacation abroad? Use our handy travel guide. After all, even Denmark has over 9,900 left to find and trigger or clear.
