Negative Effects Of Female Body Image

Satisfactory Essays
Most girls and women have looked into the mirror and said to themselves, “I wish I could be thinner,” or something along that line. The saying may be clique, but it is true that females of all ages have said to be disapproved of their body. The majority of women living in the United States have negative feelings about the way they look (Gallivan, 2014). The media is usually blamed for having negative effects on females’ identity and body image (Spurr, Berry, Walker 2013, p. 31). After all, the media is always in people’s faces in some way. It seems like the perfect body type is here to stay. The ideal body image is displayed on television, in magazines, social media, altered images, making females disapprove their own bodies.
