Summary
Influenced by the coercive powers of consumerism and the mass media, North American women have come to judge their bodies according to the unrealistic standards of our culture's beauty ideal. The ultra-lean silhouette of the fashion mannequin and the manipulated image of the magazine model have become not only physical standards, but also symbols of competence and success.
