Brázdilová, Eva ; Rosenfeldová, Jana (advisor) ; Halada, Jan (referee)
This bachelor thesis examines the sexist portrayal of women in marketing communication, focusing on whether sexism in advertising is perceived differently by women and men of Generation Z. Despite the significant influence of advertising on social attitudes towards gender, there is a lack of academic texts on how people perceive and respond to sexist advertising. This thesis consists of three parts - theoretical, methodological and research, which provide an overview of the theory of sexism, the different forms of sexist portrayals of women in advertising, means of fighting against sexism and its regulation, research methodology and analysis of research findings. The research was conducted through semi-structured interviews with Generation Z respondents to obtain qualitative data on their views on sexism in advertising. The discussion of the research findings provides insight into the attitudes and perceptions of Generation Z towards sexist portrayals of women in advertising and offers important implications for the advertising industry and society as a whole. The gathered data shows that both genders view sexist portrayal of women in advertising in a similar way, which is negative. The only significant difference was men's lower ability to recognize sexism.

Tranová, Thi Viet Chinh ; Soukup, Martin (advisor) ; Ivanišová, Markéta (referee)
This bachelor thesis examines the impact of Western beauty standards portrayed in fashion magazines on Vietnamese women.

The thesis thus offers the most frequently repeated negative impacts on individuals who have been exposed to idealized images of beauty. The aim of this thesis was to explore the impacts of Western ideals of beauty on Vietnamese women, who differ from these standards due to their genetic and physiological predispositions. In this study a qualitative research method was used, in which thirteen Vietnamese women ranging in age from eighteen to thirty-seven were interviewed.
