Effects of Ideal Body Images--Translatable Across Gender and Culture?
Unformatted Document Text:  19 The question remains whether negative effects on body image exists only in a country like the United States, where the economy is developed such that people are more health conscious and can afford to attend to body-building and exercises. If the findings in this study are any indication, cultural attention to concepts such as body esteem and self-esteem certainly seems to intervene in the effects that ideal models in the media may inflict. After all, if the standard for a beautiful Chinese woman has been the bound feet and a slender and fragile frame, it is hard to image that the same effects that occur in the States replicate themselves in the a culture where perception of beauty is different.
