Body Image

For my video mash up I will be focusing on the issue of body image and self esteem.  As a 21 year old young woman there are many images in the media that make you feel like you must always look a certain way.  Your hair must be perfect, your makeup must always look good and your body must always be in shape and lean.  Magazines, social media, TV shows, and commercials always have beautiful and skinny woman who portray beauty and a skinny body.  These images put pressure on young woman to be skinny and to be perfect in every way.  It can also cause them to feel unworthy, ugly, fat, and cause them to go into a depression or develop an eating disorder. I will put pictures of and videos clip of women like Marilyn Monroe and Sophia Loren and compare them to the body image that is considered beautiful now.
