Abstract

We live in a society which is saturated in ideals of beauty, unrealistic body images, sexist, racist and gendered physical standards. Television, advertisements and social media add fire to this storm of superficial beauty. It is a narrow and unrealistic view of the human form which often fosters discrimination and oppression. This false reality of perceived physical perfection is largely unattainable by most and may have detrimental physical and mental effects on those seeking to attain it.
