We’re all familiar with the studies that show heavier women feel worse after seeing images of the ‘thin-ideal’ women portrayed on television and in magazines. However, a new study shows that even women at low weights are affected. Recent survey conducted by the University of Missouri-Columbia postulated that women are feeling uncomfortable about their bodies after seeing ‘skinny’ models on the cover page of magazines. It seems that these publications are negatively affecting the attitudes of women. Survey is based on studying the attitudes of more than 70 women towards themselves. It was concluded that their satisfaction levels with regard to themselves turned to ebb after viewing ‘rail-thin’ models over the magazine covers. Laurie Mintz, associate professor of education, school and counseling psychology in the MU College of Education asserted, These unrealistic images of women, who are often airbrushed or partially computer generated, have a detrimental impact on women and how they feel about themselves.
