  • Product Description
 

Revision with unchanged content. As feminists have long argued, objectification as a form of oppression is often manifested in women’s weight and appearance preoccupation, eating dis­orders, and body image disturbances. While these theories have accounted for the experiences of women in a culture that devalues and oppresses them, they have often disregarded the experiences of women of color, women with disabilities, lesbian and bisexual women and women with various socio­economic statuses. Moreover, until recently, much of the litera­ture on body image disturbances, eating disorders, sexual objectification, and media images of women has been conducted primarily with White, middle-class, presumably heterosexual, young women. Yet a paucity of research has illumi­nated the fact that women in all these groups experience the pressure to be thin as well as unique appearance standards such as cultural standards of beauty, racial identity, sexual identity, or a com­bination of such factors. The unique experiences related to these identity categories may not necessarily be a deficit, but rather provide a potential buffer against societal messages.
