HaveВ youВ seenВ theВ movie, В " MeanВ Girls”? В В IfВ not, В watchВ itВ andВ becomeВ enlightenedВ aboutВ theВ terribleВ thingsВ thatВ girlsВ doВ toВ oneВ anotherВ andВ theВ ordealsВ theyВ mustВ faceВ toВ climbВ theВ socialВ hierarchyВ ofВ highВ school. В В BeautyВ isВ aВ necessityВ inВ everyВ cultureВ asВ itВ canВ determineВ socialВ status. В InВ otherВ words, В theВ mostВ beautifulВ wouldВ haveВ moreВ opportunitiesВ thanВ theВ lessВ beautiful. В StandardsВ ofВ beautyВ restrictВ womenВ allВ aroundВ theВ globeВ andВ allВ succumbВ toВ theВ pressuresВ ofВ theВ beautyВ industry, В evenВ ifВ itВ meansВ aВ lifetimeВ ofВ devotionВ toВ beautyВ regimen. В В BeautyВ seemsВ toВ defineВ theВ individualВ moreВ thanВ theirВ occupationВ andВ intelligence. В В TheВ modernВ worldВ isВ improvingВ everyday, В however, В theВ thingsВ thatВ peopleВ doВ toВ beВ beautifulВ inВ societyВ hasВ becomeВ aВ burden. В В ItВ seemsВ ironicВ thatВ anВ attemptВ toВ beВ beautiful, В whichВ isВ supposeВ toВ bringВ happinessВ bringsВ miseryВ insteadНѕВ however, В beautyВ isВ theВ oneВ ofВ theВ mostВ adulated, В andВ " althoughВ ideasВ ofВ beautyВ mayВ ultimatelyВ beВ subjectiveВ andВ uniqueВ forВ everyВ human, В thereВ areВ clearВ culturalВ trendsВ thatВ shapeВ theseВ subjectiveВ views” (" InternationalВ ConceptsВ ofВ Beauty”). В В WithВ today'sВ innovativeВ scienceВ andВ technology, В " modernВ societiesВ drawВ closerВ throughВ globalВ communicationВ andВ media, В internationalВ standardsВ ofВ beautyВ mayВ alsoВ beВ convergingВ towardВ aВ universalВ conceptВ ofВ whatВ itВ meansВ toВ beВ beautiful” (" InternationalВ ConceptsВ ofВ Beauty”). В В TheВ massВ mediaНѕВ televisionВ programs, В advertisementsВ onВ billboards, В magazines, В filmsВ promotingВ perfection, В theВ fadsВ thatВ countriesВ likeВ theВ UnitedВ States, В England, В SouthВ Africa, В China, В Japan, В andВ KoreaВ deemВ beautiful, В andВ culturesВ thatВ areВ pressuredВ toВ conformВ toВ " Western” idealsВ encumberВ womenВ globallyВ asВ theyВ undergoВ cosmeticВ surgery, В goВ onВ impossibleВ dietsВ thatВ leadВ toВ eatingВ disorders, В andВ haveВ instilledВ womenВ withВ insecuritiesВ aboutВ themselves.

instillingВ selfВ acceptanceВ inВ womenВ throughВ theВ communicationВ betweenВ family, В friends, В andВ theВ communityВ andВ haveВ televisionВ showsВ thatВ encourageВ realisticВ andВ healthyВ psychologicalВ andВ physicalВ wellВ being, В theВ restrictionsВ facedВ byВ womenВ canВ beВ alleviated. В FromВ theВ dawnВ ofВ time, В womenВ haveВ sufferedВ fromВ selfВ imageВ asВ theyВ struggleВ toВ adhereВ toВ theВ standardsВ ofВ beauty. В В " ThroughoutВ humanВ history, В foodВ shortageВ hasВ beenВ aВ constantВ concernВ andВ obesityВ hasВ beenВ almostВ nonВ existent. В В AsВ aВ result, В largeВ bodyВ sizeВ wasВ admiredВ asВ aВ symbolВ ofВ wealth, В prestige, В andВ prosperity. В В Today, В culturesВ inВ whichВ theВ riskВ ofВ starvationВ isВ realВ continueВ toВ viewВ aВ plumpВ physiqueВ withВ theseВ sameВ positiveВ associations. В В InВ manyВ developingВ nations, В bigВ womenВ areВ consideredВ sexuallyВ attractiveВ andВ beautiful, В andВ plumpnessВ isВ seenВ asВ aВ signВ ofВ fertility, В strengthВ, В andВ survival” (Smolin). В В ButВ inВ fact, В obesityВ isВ seenВ asВ theВ baneВ ofВ existenceВ forВ womenВ В aroundВ theВ worldВ inВ developedВ countriesВ asВ theyВ areВ deceivedВ byВ theВ beautyВ industryВ resultingВ inВ eatingВ disordersВ inВ orderВ toВ measureВ upВ toВ anВ unrealisticВ andВ unhealthyВ weight. В В AsВ Sherrow, В authorВ ofВ " beautyВ Standards” states: В EatingВ disordersВ occurВ inВ societiesВ whereВ foodВ isВ abundantВ andВ theВ bodyВ idealВ isВ thin. В TheyВ doВ notВ occurВ whereВ foodВ isВ scarceВ andВ peopleВ haveВ toВ worryВ aboutВ whereВ theirВ nextВ mealВ isВ comingВ from. В В ForВ example, В thereВ isВ aВ lowerВ incidenceВ ofВ eatingВ disordersВ amongВ womenВ livingВ inВ nonВ­Western, В nonВ industrializedВ nationsВ andВ amongВ certainВ ethnicВ minoritiesВ inВ theВ UnitedВ States. В В ImmigrantsВ toВ WesternВ countriesВ areВ moreВ likelyВ toВ developВ eatingВ disordersВ thanВ thoseВ whoВ remainВ inВ theirВ countryВ ofВ origin. В AsВ economicВ changesВ occurВ inВ nonВ­WesternВ societies, В theВ incidenceВ ofВ eatingВ disordersВ isВ increasing. В TheyВ areВ becomingВ commonВ clinicalВ problemsВ inВ youngВ womenВ inВ highВ­В incomeВ AsianВ societiesВ suchВ asВ Japan, В HongВ Kong, В Singapore, В Taiwan, В andВ theВ RepublicВ ofВ KoreaВ. В
