Abstract

The current study sought to find support for a racially expanded model of objectification theory for Asian and Asian American women by including culturally relevant components of body image concerns, per Moradi’s (2010) recommendations. Specifically, socialization experiences were included in the model to represent sexual objectification experiences for Asian and Asian American women (i.e., racial teasing and appearance-focused social pressure), and both dominant (U.S.) and culturally specific (Asian) modifications in the model were considered for several of the mediator and outcome variables.
