Women already have enough trouble with accepting compliments from others and actually hearing the positive things people have to say to them, the last thing women need is an image to compare themselves to that lowers their self-esteem. In the article, "Women and the Negativity Receptor" Ball states that while she was watching the movie Pretty Woman the scene where Julia Roberts character is talking to Richard Gere’s character and Roberts is talking about how she never planned to become a stripper, no one really does, she just followed that line of work because she didn’t believe she could do anything better, then Gere’s character says that she has a lot of potential in the world, and Robert’s character replied back, “The bad stuff is easier to believe.” Ball realized that most of society is like Julia Robert’s character, by setting their bar low, doubting themselves, insecure, scared, and afraid to fail. The image of the plus sized Victoria’s Secret Angel is the perfect example of the exact opposite of that and the perfect example of how everyone should believe in themselves, how everyone should be confident in who they are and go for what they want in life. Stated in the article, "Women and the Negativity Receptor" Ball researches on why women have low self-esteem and she came up with that part of the reason why women have low self-esteem is that there is an area in a female 's brain that is actually there just for the negative thinking someone’s brain has, stated by the

In this part of the song Colbie Caillat talks about the expectations when it comes to women’s behavior and the pressure for them to always look nice and sexy all the time. The struggle is not only to fit in when it comes to looks, but also when it comes to how they should act.

Beyonce does the same in her song Flawless: “ We say to girl; You can have ambition; But not too much; You should be successful, but not too successful”

Women working with other women help spread light and eliminate darkness. It presents a chain reaction that is positive.
For example, girls will style their hair to “become more attractive” (Berger 2014), or they will purchase ‘minimizer,’ ‘maximizer,’ ‘training,’ or ‘shaping’ bras, hoping that their breasts will conform to their idealized body image” (Berger 2014). This all appears to be harmless activities, yet when body image is only addressed outwardly and not psychologically, there can be an increase in poor and destructive behaviors. For instance, body image dissatisfaction can lead to poor self-esteem, which can create a cycle of increased body dissatisfaction, followed by decreasing self-esteem (Stapleton et al., 2017). Ultimately, a teenage girl can find herself in a cycle of “depression, eating disorders and obesity” (Stapleton et al., 2017). On study in 2012 revealed, “Two-thirds of U.S. high school girls are trying to lose weight, even though only one-fourth are actually overweight or obese” (Berger 2014).
The gender norm I chose to violate was not wearing makeup. I chose to violate this norm because I realized how uncomfortable I am not covering up my face when other people are going to see me, no matter how short the amount of time they will be seeing me. This specific norm is tied to gender because of what it represents socially. There are numerous females in the west who use makeup in order to cover up perceived flaws and try to achieve perfection.

Mary Mebane conveyed in the article that having “dark dark” skin, resulted in a social stigma among not just white people but black society as a whole. It wasn’t just a way for others to critique you, but with how the individual viewed themselves, as they also were treated differently by black people. She discusses her own feelings and experiences, while articulating various mechanisms of those around her during the era in dealing with the stigma that being darker meant you were less desirable. She sites how in time these stigmas were less prevalent in society. I agree with her largely on the subject, although I still find it prevalent in today’s society.
