Another Advertising Stereotype: Effects of Non-Stereotyped Portrayals of Older Women in Advertising

This paper examines the effects of featuring non-stereotyped portrayals of older women in advertisements. In two empirical studies, we demonstrate positive ad effects of using non-stereotyped portrayals of older models for female consumers. Furthermore, these effects are explained with signaling theory and the social effects of advertising.
