Images of female bodies are everywhere, with women and girls — and their body parts — selling everything from food to cars. Popular film and television actresses are becoming younger, taller and thinner. The age of Snapchat and Instagram has perpetuated the notion that to have the ideal life you must have the ideal body type.
Why are these impossible standards of beauty being imposed on girls, the majority of whom look nothing like the models that are being presented to them? Some of the causes are economic: by presenting a physical ideal that is difficult to achieve and maintain the cosmetic and diet industries are assured continual growth and profits.
This business strategy has worked over the ages, as 9 in 10 girls are now saying they are unhappy with their bodies due to this perfectionist culture. These messages are so powerful and widespread in our culture that they affect girls long before they are exposed to fashion or beauty or magazines: three-year-olds already prefer game pieces that depict thin people over those representing heavier ones.
The effects of exposure to these images and messages goes beyond influencing girls to buy diet and beauty products. Exposure to images of thin, young, photoshopped female bodies is linked to anxiety, depression, loss of self-esteem and body dissatisfaction in girls and young women. In some cases, this can be a factor in girls developing eating disorders and a barrier to recovering from them.
More importantly, they need to be empowered to challenge these representations and advocate for more realistic representations.
