Body Image

Body image is the perceived image of ones own body. If someone thinks they are fat and they're not, then they have a distorted body image. I think this topic should be studied because it concerns all of us. Everyone is affected by the images on the media. There have been 3 waves of feminism. The first wave was to get women suffrage, the second wave was for equality between the sexes and the third wave has been about body images and dealing with the media.

A body outlaw is anyone who deifies everyone's expectations and just does as they wish. Someone who doesn't care what anyone thinks, but is happy. I think women who don't shave are considered outlaws, when a celebrity doesn't shave its usually all of the post the next day. I think that its their decision to shave or not, and its nobody's business but the person.
