How To Own The Room: Women And The Art Of Brill... ^HOT^

Intrigued by Freud's notion that irrational forces drive human behavior, Bernays sought to harness those forces to sell products for his clients. In his 1928 book, "Propaganda," Bernays hypothesized that by understanding the group mind, it would be possible to manipulate people's behavior without their even realizing it. To test this hypothesis, Bernays launched one of his most famous public relations campaigns: convincing women to smoke.

In 1929, it was taboo for women to smoke in public and those who flouted convention were thought to be sexually permissive. Bernays' client was George Washington Hill, president of the American Tobacco Company, who envisioned breaking this taboo to broaden the market for his Lucky Strike brand. Bernays asked Hill for permission to consult with New York's leading psychoanalyst and Freud disciple, Dr. A.A. Brill, and was granted this unusual request.

This was the first but not the last time Bernays would consult with psychoanalysts to help shape his public relations campaigns. When asked what cigarettes symbolized to women, Brill's response was that cigarettes were symbolic of male power.

Ringhaver is an iconic figure in the art of printmaking in the Chicago scene. Along with two other women, Ringhaver opened Expressions GRaphics in 1981. The original idea for the center was a place to printmake, etch, block print, and silk screen for those who were new to the form. They wanted to teach and educate about a side of art that not many knew much about.

Brill moved to Vienna in 2005 to serve as pastor at Wesley United Methodist Church and was elected to Town Council in 2020. He is a founding scoutmaster for Troop 345 at Wesley United Methodist Church and a volunteer at the Lamb Center and with Wounded Warriors at Walter Reed Hospital. He also previously served on a city planning commission while living in Florida and as chairman of the board of a Salvation Army Chapter, also in Florida, and the Suzanna Wesley House for homeless women in Washington, DC. 041b061a72
