Unrealistic Beauty

Leave a comment

It is a known fact that the beauty industry is in need of a major change. But after watching Miss Representation and realizing just how many 13 year old girls don’t like their bodies, and how that number doubles at 18. I am completely appalled. Young girls should be focusing on having fun, school work, and deciding what they want to be when they grow up not worrying about their bodies. The blame can be placed mainly on media and how they show the “perfect woman” woman to look like. Very unrealistic! For the sake of young girls futures we need to drastically change the beauty and media industry. I’m afraid if we don’t in a few years we are going to have a whole generation of women who believe that their worth comes from their looks and not from their wonderful minds.
