Browsing through the living section of msn.com, I come across this recent posting stating that Vogue Magazine, the one with ridiculous advertisements featuring models that appear to be on the eve of reaching puberty, plans to initiate a campaign against underweight models. Starting in June Vogue will enforce their pledge by limiting their tolerance towards curve less models. I personally think is a great idea that needs to be implemented by other major publications. Fashion magazines and other media are an important part of the culture of thinness. Females are concerned that they are overweight, even if their weight is appropriate which can result in the development of eating disorders.
Why do you think females are dissatisfied with their bodies? Is the media to blame? Does ethnicity make a difference in women’s body dissatisfaction?
