media image of women

There is an underlining problem involving women and their image in the media. There is a stereotype for pretty women that are not reachable for most women and girls without surgery and diets. There have been nearly 9.5 million people choosing to have surgery in the U.S.A that’s way too much.
Women's image is changing within our society. Young women are being more self-concious of their bodies and are layering on make up to make them feel better about themselves. It's really cruel and shouldn't be happening. More women are going diets to be like the girls they see in magazines even though the models have all been air brushed. That’s what young women want to be like this unreachable goal to be perfect it is bringing us all down. We should be happy with ourselves and love all body types.


Magazine and TV are disrespecting heaps of girls' body in what they dress them in; miniskirts tight tops lingerie. It is all fuelling the race to be perfect. Girls see the girls in the magazine, they don’t think, "ew that’s horrible." They think those girls have publicity and money and be like them and it reflects in what they wear. The girls in the media aren’t role models for young women there the op in yet heaps young girls want to be like them


I wrote this because I know I am a young person and I do see this going on it's not good it needs to stop.
