Misperception of Beauty

2 Apr

Clearly how beauty in our nation is defined is a real issues. There is nothing that I could say that millions of others haven’t. Yes, girls look at advertisements and commercials and see how they belief they should look and yes this has taken a huge toll on the amount of people with low self-esteem, depression, eating disorders, and even suicide. While it has a lot to do with the standards that the media has put in place, there is nothing we can do to get the media to go away. It is here to stay, and frankly I don’t think I would want to live in a world where there wasn’t an influence from the media. Our society just needs to learn how to do positive things with the technology that we have. The skills that are displayed in this video are incredible, and while at the present they might be harming the women of the world, if these skills and technologies could be used for good incredible things could happen. I think what Dove does in this video shows a perfect example of this mind set. They show how shocking of a change photoshop and other programs can make but they don’t condemn it, just show us so we know what really to believe.
