Body image has become one of the major cultural issues of this generation.
The use of "enhanced" images in popular magazines, which change the proportions of the human body, is only one example of how "beauty" has become distorted and unattainable for real people. Females are at the center of this issue, with ad campaigns, social groups, and even politicians fighting against the "idealizing" of the female body. The following is a documentary available through the Library's Film on Demand database on this important and polemical topic.
