This approach reached out the millions of women because it once again proved reassurance. Many women were doubtful that they could not leave for the work force without giving up something in their personal life. It pushed them to make the final decision to join Westinghouse and various other factories in the United States during World War
Their positions were filled up by others with lower jobs, like women and African Americans. For women, these jobs paid better and were "less susceptible to economic exploitation. " This meant that they were less likely to have been treated unfairly for their work for the benefit of others. Once the war had ended and men had come back, women had to give their jobs back to the men. This resulted in women returning to white-collared jobs or work at home.
In contrast to past gender stereotypes, they argue that girls should be strong, independent, and intelligent. Orenstein takes a second wave feminism approach, meaning females are just as capable as males. She references how she commonly writes about feminism and warning parents of a “preoccupation of body and beauty” in order to pull for a change in society (327). The beauty standards give women an impossible set of goals deterring their confidence. In addition to unrealistic standards, Orenstein is alarmed by the growing popularity of princesses because she views them as “retrograde role models” (329).

So Akst says that to all the girls that think they are not fat because they are not a size zero. Also, in the office, a man wearing a suit might be more professional than a person wearing flip flops, jeans or shorts. The latter person is just the less fortunate person in the
James A. Forbes, an interdenominational minister in New York, once said, “When people rely on surface appearances and false racial stereotypes, rather than in-depth knowledge of others at the level of the heart, mind and spirit, their ability to assess and understand people accurately is compromised.” Forbes is saying that many humans judge by the color of the skin on the outside, rather than the fact that there is no difference on the inside. Humans also rely on the actions of those before that person with the same skin color. Unfortunately, humans do not try to get to know who a person really is and the personality of that person, they just assume that all African Americans are alike and not their own person. Statistics state that minority
They can do the same jobs as their male counterparts and their value in the work field still exists as inferior. Although companies will try to justify the pay difference, very often, they do not have valid reasoning why the males receive higher pay. Although these women encounter inequalities at all levels, it’s not simply an inequality, but a glass ceiling effect as a result of the distribution of women at the top being smaller and the inequality increases as the women go up the rung of the job market
There are often arguments that these procedures are unnatural, immoral or not in God’s plan; however, it is difficult for someone to go along with typical gender roles, if who they are on the inside, does not reflect who they are on the outside.

American society promotes the idea that it is not normal for people to express themselves by the way that they feel on the inside, which is truly

Women are working incredibly hard to earn their place in the workforce and to be treated equal, but there is much more that needs to happen.

We use celebrity ‘news’ to perpetuate this dehumanizing view of women, focused solely on one’s physical appearance” (Anniston). Young girls do not have a mature understanding of how those magazines work and how to make a wise judgment about the standards of beauty diffused by magazines. That leads them to try to imitate the pictures in magazines (most of the time those pictures are photoshopped) and try to be in perfect shape with a skinny body and a flat stomach and a low weight. When they can not reach that body and fulfill the standards, they develop psychological issues and have a health
Constantly comparing herself to others and not being happy with who she was could have played a huge role in her developing bulimia. Other than having an eating disorder, Demi

There’s a big difference in what women are being paid compared to men, it’s not just something that happens to adults and the United States isn’t even the worst , though it’s also not the best.
