Media Effecting Young Girls

Leave a comment

Womens’ body image in our media seems to be one of the most prevalent influences on the young girls in our society. Girls grow up, reading magazines and seeing ads that turn women into sexualized objects rather than human beings. Silicone implants, botox, and other plastic surgeries have become a common practice in women hoping to reshape their bodies to become more like the women they saw in those ads growing up. Young girls need to be taught that each body is individual and cannot be generalized into one type of beauty. Beauty is constantly changing and every woman should feel that they are beautiful.
