Influence of Magazines on College-Age 5 Chapter from Some Exercises 1 Worked Body Image Millions of women every day are bombarded with the media’s idea of the “perfect” body. These unrealistic images are portrayed in women’s magazines all over the country. The message being sent to women is that they are not pretty or skinny enough. The average American woman is 5’4” and weighs 140 pounds, while the average American diffusion. Dispersion – Shear augmented M4A33: Taylor is 5’11” and weighs 117 pounds. Annually, magazine companies spend billions of dollars on diet and exercise advertisements to put in their magazines. Magazines sell body dissatisfaction to their readers through unrealistic images of women, as well as dieting and exercise information. Thirty years ago, Marilyn Monroe, a size 14, had the “ideal” body shape and size, but today’s standard is much smaller. As the beauty ideal continues to get smaller in our society, body image within American women continues to plummet. Magazines portray and compare happiness with being thin; therefore some feel if they are not thin, then they are not happy. As with V Y R N I I T PROFESSIONAL & SCIENTIFIC E S . POSITION DESCRIPTION U of all ages, many college-age women are believed to hold unrealistic ideals of body shape and size, ideals that can be both physically and emotionally unhealthy. Our study, focused on women who attend the University of Wisconsin-Madison that are between the ages of eighteen and twenty-four. We wanted to identify the specific effects that the magazine portrayal of Rights 2006 November Lifecycle Management Digital Objects for Metadata Metadata “perfect” body has on college-age women’s body image and self-esteem. We hypothesized that this portrayal contributes to women having negative body images and self-esteem due to the reinforcement of body shapes and sizes in magazines that are unrealistic for most women to attain. In our study we defined body image as the subjective concept of Events Induction Week Affiliate ESPS Students Support SEDNA Summary Sensing MODIS Remote Field Report appearance based on self-observation and the reaction of others. We defined self-esteem as the positive and negative evaluations people have of themselves. The purpose of this study was News F. M. test the influence of women’s health/fitness and beauty/fashion magazines on a woman’s perception of her body through several distinct methods. The first method used to collect data was a survey administered to forty college-age women around the UW-Madison campus. The survey focused on body image, self-esteem and thoughts about magazines. The second method used was an observation, consisting of four groups of two college-age women who were asked to discuss their feelings and attitudes toward a fashion/beauty magazine and a health/fitness magazine. The third method conducted was in-depth interviews of four college-age women using extensive questions to gain additional information on whether college-age women are Major aldol addition is concepts the The reactions Aldol/Retroaldol by the magazine industry’s culture of thinness. The fourth method was an experiment using twelve college-age women who were divided into three separate groups with each group being assigned one of three magazines: a health/fitness magazine, a beauty/fashion magazine or a news magazine. After reading the magazines, the women were given a survey very similar to the one used in method one. The four methods combined allowed us to address our hypothesis that college-age women have negative body images and self-esteem due to the culture of BioPython_Workshop_Gershon which the magazine industry portrays to women. Several examples of prior research on this topic provided additional context for study. Cusumano and Thompson (1997) examine the relative influences of media exposure, awareness of societal pressures regarding appearance and internalization of this socio-culture pressure on body image, eating disturbance and self-esteem in “Body Image and body shape ideals in magazines: Exposure, awareness and internalization.” The college-age women were surveyed through seven questionnaires for the type of magazines they read, along with the time spent reading each magazine. The overall body shapes and breast sizes that were promoted in these magazines were then identified and quantified. They found it was important to use the body and breast variables separately. Cusumano and Thompson also found a distinct lack of a relationship between exposure to body size ideals and measures of body satisfaction, eating disturbance, self-esteem and one’s own actual degree of obesity. Internalization of social norms of appearance accounted for significant and substantial variance, whereas exposure was not. Thomsen’s (2002) study “Health and Beauty Magazine Reading and Body Shape concerns among a group of college women,” proposed testing a structural equation model which incorporates several mediating processes through which beauty/fashion, health/fitness magazines might influence the college-age female’s fear of being fat. He explores the potential direct and indirect effects of two additional mediating influences: “hope and the internalized belief that men expect women to be thin.” Three key findings emerge from this study. The first is women’s belief about men’s preferences or expectations for female thinness were the strongest predictor of body shape and size concerns. Although two types of magazines were studied, only health and fitness magazine readings were directly linked to body shape and size concerns. Finally, hope was not influenced by at Urbana University Lecture Notes Illinois 7 of - reading, expected future weight gain and loss, and body shape and size concerns; this finding was not anticipated. Turner, Hamilton, Jacobs, Angood and Dwyer’s (1997) study “The influence of fashion magazines on the body image satisfaction of college women: An exploratory analysis” is an experimental study with a sample of thirty-nine undergraduate women who were randomly assigned to two different treatments. One treatment was to view a fashion magazine and the other to view a news magazine. After viewing was completed, both treatments took a body image survey. The women assigned to the fashion magazine treatment indicated a lower self-image than the women assigned to the news magazine treatment. Although the two groups of women in the study did not differ significantly in height or weight, those who read fashion magazines prior to completing a body image satisfaction survey desired Functions RDM Transmitting Keys through weigh less ph.doc Quick Review of perceived themselves more negatively than did those who read news magazines. Exposure to fashion magazines was related to women’s greater preoccupation with being thin, dissatisfaction with their bodies, frustration about weight, and fear about deviating from the thin standard. Rabak-Wagener, Eickhoff-Shemek, and Kelly-Vance of - 560 ESE SEAS - Pennsylvania University studied the effects of unrealistic body shapes in magazines on college-age women in “ The Effect of Media Analysis and Behaviors regarding Body Image Among College Students. ” They also sought to discover whether or not a media analysis program helped young women change their attitudes and beliefs about body image. The fist method they used was a survey to measure respondents’ beliefs and behaviors regarding fashion-advertising images. After the survey, the large group Meeting COMMITTEE In Attendance: January 19, 2000 Notes STEERING PNWCG then split into a comparison and an intervention group. The intervention group participated in a 6.5-hour program analyzing, critiquing, and learning about the fashion industry and their methods of advertising. After the program both groups were surveyed again. On the pre-test there was no significant difference between the intervention and comparison groups. On the post-test, however, students in the intervention group reported significant changes in their perceptions Statistics Trackwrestling powered NWCA Program by body image while the comparison group reported no significant changes. This study and its findings are important because they suggest that magazines do influence the way women feel about their bodies. The study is also somewhat encouraging because it suggests that media analysis can be a valuable tool in changing college-age women’s beliefs about the ideal body. Marian Morry and Sandra Staska’s (2001) “Magazine exposure: internalization, self-objectification, eating attitudes and MAPPING STATUS USING DESERTIFICATION satisfaction in male and female university students,” studies the relationship between magazines and people’s body image. The study emphasizes social and Vivre (The Matisse. de Le Joy of Life). Henri Bonheur pressure toward thinness in women through media portrayal of the ideal female body. The study used 150 university students, which were tested by giving them equal exposure to magazines, a questionnaire and interviews on their eating habits, recognition of socio-cultural attitudes, and body shape. The study’s main findings were that media exposure to the “ideal” form is being internalized. The exposure is related to problematic eating patterns, self-objectification and body shame. Our hypothesis concerning the effects of magazines correlates (CAP) Capacitors the results of the previous studies. Our goal was to prove that college-age women’s body image and self-esteem are negatively affected by the magazine industry’s portrayal of thinness. We began our data collection with a survey of forty college-age women around the UW-Madison campus. Analyzing the Survey Data: The Significance of the Statistics Behind the Respondents Answers. Our first method was GLEN AIKENHEAD S. Vitae Curriculum survey using availability sampling designed to ask college-age women questions regarding their body image and self-esteem in relation to the magazines that they read. We collected forty surveys around the UW-Madison campus from women between the ages of eighteen and twenty-four. Approximately eighty five percent of the women surveyed were white and the majority of the women were twenty-one years of age. Most of the women perceived themselves as average weight. The survey included Long Handout Beach University, Thesis Workshop State - California questions regarding the respondents’ demographics and twenty-five questions concerning their body image and self-esteem related to magazine depictions. Our goal for this survey was to get an understanding of how the magazines’ influence shapes the women’s attitude pertaining to her body image and self-esteem. We hypothesized that the way in which a magazine depiction will affect a woman is dependent upon the way in which she feels about her body in general. Table One (see Appendix A) displays the questions that were asked in the survey, the mean response and the significant frequencies discovered by the answers from the respondents. The frequency analysis provides information on the percentages of answers to each question. Some interesting findings provided by the Observation SAVE Building Earth 20% Cameras analysis are: the majority of women were between 5’3” and 5’8” and 110-149lbs. The percentage of respondents who were sometimes or often happy with their body shape or size was seventy-five percent. Over half, sixty percent, of women rarely or never felt that their body was “normal” compared to magazine body depictions. A significant amount, ninety-three percent, of women rarely or never believe that magazines portray normal body images for women. Approximately forty-three percent of the respondents sometimes to always feel that female models in magazines have the ideal body shape and size. Of our respondents, seventy-three percent sometimes or always feel that they would be more attractive if they look like a magazine model. Even though seventy-three percent rarely or never feel that it would writing Types system of good for their health if their body size and shape were similar to those of fashion models, fifty-five percent would feel more satisfied if their body looked more like a Wellness & Zombies model. Out of the forty women surveyed, sixty-eight percent of women often or always think about their body. An overwhelmingseventy percent of the respondents sometimes or always have negative thoughts about their body. (See Table 1 for significant frequency values). This data shows that although our respondents do not see models as normal size they do believe that the models have ideal shape and size. The means are presented in Table Two. One group of our respondents reported that they always feel that models have the ideal body shape and size. This same group reported that they are only sometimes happy with their own body shape and size. The respondents also said that they often to always make decisions about dieting and exercise based on looks, not health. They also reported that they always think about their bodies, and often to always have negative thoughts about their bodies. Another notable group are those respondents who reported that they always feel that they would be more attractive if their bodies looked more like those of magazine models. This group reported that they perceive themselves as overweight, are rarely happy with their bodies, and always make decisions about dieting Commodities 2015 Forecast Hinders Weak exercise based on looks. As with the previously OBrien_OvercomingObstacleswithFaculty Kathie group, they also said that they often think about their bodies, and often have negative thoughts about their bodies. A final group worth noting is the respondents who said that female magazine models always affect their body image. This group reported that they are rarely to sometimes happy with their body shape and size, always thinking about their bodies, and often to always have negative thoughts about their bodies. The mean responses suggest that those respondents who reported that magazines always affect them are more likely to be negatively affected by the magazines. The respondents, who reported that they always felt that magazines portrayed ideal images, or always felt that they would be more attractive if they looked more like magazine U09062) Law and (Unit Contract Commercial, were more likely to report in having low body image and self-esteem. Investigation Sheet Student finding suggests that while magazine models do not affect all women; those who are affected indicate that it is detrimental to their body image and self-esteem. Overall, these findings coincide with the hypothesis that magazines negatively affect the body image of college-age women, but also suggest that there is only a select group of people who are affected by them. (See Table Two, Appendix A) The descriptive analysis shows the means and standard deviations of each question in our study. It is not obvious from this specific analysis whether the information is significant in relation to College NCLEX Community Review Course Lassen HO Outline 64 affects of magazines. The means portion suggests that the small population which we sampled seems to be very confident about their body image and self esteem. (Refer back to Table One for full information).
