In today’s society especially seeing all of these celebrities on the internet and TV and how good they look makes women try even harder to fit that certain image that society portrays women out to be. Society is a very harmful thing, it pressures many people into believe that what is fake is real. In the eyes of society if you
During the romantic period, society judges women on their beauty, something that they have no control over. This idea of beauty was pushed on young girls and this made them feel as if beauty was the only thing that’s important, but the romantic period literature was going to change that. Beauty, shown as the single most important thing for women in Northanger Abbey and A Vindication of the Rights of Women, which is wrong because it’s degrading for women to be judged on something that they can’t control, this then affects how women are depicted in literature, changing the work’s tone to be satirical, making fun of this idea, or rebellious, in going away from these beauty standards. Instead of degrading women based on their beauty, women should instead get compliments on their beauty. But most women had no way to change these standards, the only thing they could do was make them into a joke, which is exactly what Austen did in Northanger Abbey.

As shown in this quote, the girl in this poem tried to appease society by doing everything she could to get rid of what society calls defects including: dieting, exercising, and act differently. This reminds me of all the pressure my family has put on me to do the same thing this girl did to fit society's perfect image of a young woman.
