Girls, Boys and Body Image

I found this interesting blog by Miriam Novogrodsky regarding body image that I thought was right in line with what we are discussing in my Girls' Studies class. The pressure to be thin effects both girls and boys. There is so much pressure on boys and girls to look, think, and act a certain way. Products are manufactured and advertised to sell the "perfect image" that, rarely, can anyone actually achieve. As we evolve, I often wonder if there will ever be a world where a person is not valued by what they look on the outside but rather by "who" they are on the inside.
