Miss Representation: Body Image and the Media Report

 

The Guardian’s report on The University of the West of England’s Centre for Appearance Research.

There’s nothing particularly new here. A visually complex, image dominated culture remains bound up with issues of self-esteem, but this report points to some other issues such as how individuals are socialised into being negative about their bodies.

Worth a read..
