Using this approach to question the roles of sex and gender in society interrupts the heteronormative diaspora of historical western culture and introduces ideas that are progressive and potentially less biased. “Through forward thinking fashion, culture-defining opinions and inspirational points of view, Marie Claire is always challenging millions of women to up their game.

In 1954, the fraction of selection was established by Wilbur Schramm. It was a formula for determining which method of mass media an individual would select and therefore helped decide the extent of gratification an individual would assume to gain from the medium in comparison to how much effort they had to put to achieve gratification. Stage 2 began in 1964 where Jay Blumler and Denis McQuail studied the 1964 election in the UK to identify the people’s motives for watching certain political programs on TV. The audience motives they were able to identify aided in laying the ground work for their research in 1972 and ultimately the users and gratification theory. Stage 3 pointers us to the utmost latest interest surrounding the uses and gratification theory and that is the connection amid the reason behind why media is consumed and the attained gratification.

In 2008, the YWVA USA reported that women’s obsession towards beauty has led them to has lower self esteem. This is supported by Cash & Cash’s (1992) study which is “ Women’s Use of Cosmetics,” which claims that public self consciousness also related with the usage of cosmetics.
