dc.description.abstractDo the images people are exposed to on a daily basis from magazine ads to billboards affect women's self esteem? Forty undergraduate students viewed images of women in different professions and of different body types to test the theory. According to past research all these perfect images people are exposed to on a daily basis are having a lasting effect on their perceptions of themselves. This researcher wanted to know if exposure to these images would lower women's self-esteem. Results indicated that neither the different conditions (model images versus average body type images) nor the type of profession (lower or higher class occupations) produced any significant differences. Further research is needed to clarify factors related to women's low self-esteem.
