Appearance dissatisfaction among women has been the focus of much research. Silverstein and Perlick (1995) argue that high achieving women in patriarchal societies have historically suffered from anxiety and disordered eating in part due to gender inequality.

While gender inequality persists, the media has become a powerful and pervasive influence on people’s lives.
