Description

Abstract

In our culture, women try so hard to be the ideal congenial beauty queen. We believe that there is only one standard of beauty and if we don’t look that way then we are ugly. We compare ourselves to each other and especially to the size 0 models in the magazines. I have struggled with this since elementary school when girls start learning that they have to appear attractive to the opposite sex. Even in my fourth year of college I continue to stress over what image I want to portray.
