    Quotation: Images of female bodies are everywhere. Popular film and television actresses are becoming younger, taller and thinner. Some have even been known to faint on the set from lack of food. Women’s magazines are full of articles urging that if they can just lose those last twenty pounds, they’ll have it all—the perfect marriage, loving children, great sex, and a rewarding career.

    2009, n.n.)
    In the film clip, the famous “mirror scene from Snow White” is parodied. Every young girl wonders if she measures up to the standards set by society for beauty. The clip is intended to be a springboard for discussing standards for beauty and young girl’s sense of self-esteem.

    Society’s Image of Beauty in the 21st Century
    Central Idea: Society’s image of ideal beauty spread throughout the media is impossible for young girls to live up to and be healthy.
    Quotation: We don’t need Afghan-style burquas to disappear as women. We disappear in reverse—by revamping and revealing our bodies to meet externally imposed visions of female beauty. --Robin Gerber, author and motivational speaker (Beauty and body image, 2009, n.n.)
    Introduction
    Quotation: Images of female bodies are everywhere. Popular film and television actresses are becoming younger, taller and thinner. Some have even been known to faint on the set from lack of food. Women’s magazines are full of articles urging that if they can just lose those last twenty pounds, they’ll have it all—the perfect marriage, loving children, great sex, and a rewarding career. (Beauty and body image, 2009, n.n.)
    I. Film Clip from 1980s sitcom, “The Charmings,” with Lillian consulting her magic mirror about her “beauty status.”
    “The Charmings’ plot was that fairy tale characters Snow White and Prince Charming were magically transported to a 20th century suburb in California. Each episode shows the Charmings trying adapt to their new life while Lillian, the wicked stepmother, and her wise cracking Magic Mirror watch from upstairs.” (The charmings, 2009, n.n.)
    In the film clip, the famous “mirror scene from Snow White” is parodied. Every young girl wonders if she measures up to the standards set by society for beauty. The clip is intended to be a springboard for discussing standards for beauty and young girl’s sense of self-esteem.

    Discussion:
    1. What is going on in the film clip from “The Charmings?”
    2. What does this satire say about society’s preoccupation with beauty?
    3. Why does Lillian keep on asking this same question over-and-over again?
    4. Why do people today still ask this same question?
    II. Film clip of “Top Ten Teen Magazines”
    I put this collage together from the website “The Top 10 Teen Magazines.” I added music by Tracy Chapman, “All that You Have is Your Soul.” It is intended to show the media’s standards of beauty for girls in our society. At the end, there is a skin-and-bones young lady looking into a mirror and seeing herself as fat. (I can’t upload it due to large size.)
    Filmclip #2 I created a collage for this part that is too large to upload. The pictures give the gist of the collage.

    {anorexia02ez3.jpg}
    Discussion:
    1. What image are all these magazines communicating to young girls about beauty?
    2. Name the characteristics of a “beautiful girl” according to the magazines.
    3. Could your daughter/sister be in the magazines without a “touch-up”?
    4. What would need to be done to their photograph to make it acceptable to the editors?
    5. Are the pictures of the teenage girls in the magazines pictures of real girls?
    6. What happens to young girls who buy-into the media image and try to live up to it?
    III. Film clip “Dove Evolution”
    In this film clip, Photoshop techniques are applied to a photograph of an ordinary looking young girl. The result is quite revealing about what can happen to photographs after they are taken and before they appear in a magazine. The result is spread all over by means of billboards.
    Filmclip #3 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iYhCn0jf46U
    Discussion:
    1. What is the harm with a little Photoshop?
    2. Don’t we all want to look our best?
    3. How many changes did the computer operator make in the original photograph?
    4. What happens when readers of the magazine adopt the standards of beauty portrayed in the magazine’s photographs?
    5. What happens if readers cannot live up to that image?
    {Real_Girl_Photoshop_Girl.JPG}
    This girl actually exists. This girl does not exist outside of Photoshop.
    6. Which one do you want your young daughter to compare herself to?
    IV. Film Clip from “Real Women have Curves”
    This film clip shows real women in conversation about their weight and their beauty as full-figured women. They remove their clothes to show they are comfortable with their body type and beauty. Not everyone present participates or agrees that “real women have curves.”
    Filmclip # 4 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nG1L3wIIxlc
    Discussion:
    1. Why do the women take their clothes off?
    2. Are they being “naughty?” Why?
    3. Why do they decide to keep their clothes off?
    4. Why do they consider themselves to be “real” women?
    5. Do all women have to be thin to be beautiful?
    6. How thin is thin-enough?
    7. Which goal is more important for a young lady to pursue: to be popular or to be healthy?
