Abstract/Artist Statement

The study looks at women’s body dissatisfaction as a result of exposure to advertising and other content in fashion and health magazines. A survey was administered to approximately 100 female students in undergraduate classes at the university of the Pacific. The survey measured body satisfaction using The Body-Esteem Scale (Franzoi & Shields, 1984). Amount of exposure to four magazines (Shape, Women’s Health, Fitness and Cosmopolitan) were also recorded. The study predicts that those with more exposure to these magazines will show higher body dissatisfaction.
