''Target Women'' is a segment of the web channel [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Current?feature=watch Current]] hosted by Creator/SarahHaskins. In it, she looks at commercials featuring women and products for women and the stereotypes of women that they present. Far from the dry, academic analysis so common to feminist critiques, Sarah's style is lighthearted, snarky and humorous.
