Is It Really About Gender?: Eating Disorders and Societal Pressures

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Research suggests that femininity is a “risk factor” for eating disorders. Little research has examined how masculinity in women might impact eating pathology. Studies have found that eating disordered individuals present with masculine traits. A framework conceptualizing these factors as societal pressures not related to gender roles will be discussed.
