Many women are bothered by the seemingly perfect models they see on the billboards, in television adverts and on magazine covers. Anorexia survivor Erin Treloar said “my eating disorder was perpetuated by retouched magazine photos”. Beauty standards has such a giant effect on women emotionally, psychologically and physically. The pressure on women to be thin leads to unhealthy weight loss practices (Battle & Brownell, 1996), eating disorders such as bulimia and anorexia (Thompson, Heinberg, Altabe, & Tantleff-Dunn, 1998) and low self-esteem (Tiggeman & Stevens,
(Stereotype of woman in society) Woman in the media are portrayed everyday through false images and exemplars in todays society. The media portrays girls to be young, skinny and attractive, and if you do not have these qualities, you “fail” as a woman. In fact, no matter where we go, women are constantly reminded of these false images they must portray. For instance if you open up a magazine there will probably be endless amounts of advertisements of girls selling their body for certain products, or symbolizing themselves for just beauty, instead of their education or self worth. Overall due to the media people are getting the wrong representation of woman.

To create a sympathetic image, her text is full of emotional words and phrases; Sommers states “That girls are treated as the second sex in school and consequently suffer, that boys are accorded privileges and consequently benefit” (Sommers) and that these are the types of stuff that each one seems to consider or perceive. The image that she evokes generates people to feel vulnerable about the way school system treats girls differently than how they treat boys, as amiably as all of the emotion that this problem is causing. To identify how other people; such as the school systems; understand that girls go on treated, her goal is to cause the readers to notice that they don’t suffer more than boys. To provoke negative emotions throughout her text, she uses words and phrases, which produces the reader feel as they continue judging the way people treat girls. She has also pointed different words to set the emotion of unfairness.
To an extent even Moira becomes demoralized after being captured and forced to be a prostitute, which highlights that Gilead is able to transform and crush the spirits of even those who outwardly rebel. Aunt Lydia tells the handmaids to accept their new duty even though it “may not seem ordinary to [them] now,” because “after time it will. It will become ordinary.” Aunt Lydia’s assurance of them only transiently feeling out of place is just one way that Gilead tries to alter the handmaid's mindset
To his surprise, this presents Horner with an "alternate economy of feminine desire” (Burke 237). Feminine desire, which is largely ignored in patriarchal society, forces Horner to humanize the women he’s talking to instead of treating them as a commodity. In fact, the women get defensive when Horner brings up the issue of payment. This commodification of women paints them as very one-dimensional. Additionally, Dainty speaks of embarrassment, “we blush when they are shame-faced” (Wycherley 1189).

Celie’s female passivity has conequently meant, that Harpo has been socialised to see women as passive creatures, which is why he is unable to understand Sofia’s stronger personality and character. The resulting female passivity is arguably due to the society’s socialisation of individuals where people learn from their family, and their role models, one that is understandable. Celie’s female passivity has therefore allowed for both the cycle of abuse as well as the image of passive women which would continue to be unchanged in society if one does not resist the system. In addition to understanding Celie’s abusive environment, Edwin Mhandu describes how men in The Colour Purple use ‘violence to dominate women’ which support the differences in power and control in the society where Celie grows up in, compared to the society in The World’s Wife where the dominance of men in media and institutions are the main focus. For example, Celie describes how Albert ‘beat me like he beat the children’, therefore demonstrating that violence is spread throughout the novel, with both domestic abuse towards partners and the children.
That you have to look like Barbie or Victoria 's secret model to be welcome in this society. I strongly believe that these stereotypes should be nothing more than stereotypes. Here are my reasons why: first how it affects women in everyday life, how the song Pretty Hurts has an in-depth meaning, and lastly how society doesn’t see what they 're doing is wrong, but when something happens to the victim will they care then? capitals Everyone has their own imperfections. So why gloat about others?
It seems that women are more pressured to look a certain way in order to feel accepted by society. The majority of the problem comes from our images of personal attractiveness that are influenced by T.V. commercials and magazine advertisements. I, myself have been judged by my appearance because I think make- up does not create beauty. There is more to a human being instead of worrying about the minor details of your appearance, focusing too much on acquiring beauty can have negative consequences.
