What elements does society use to deem a woman’s beauty? Is it her ethnicity, hair, skin, features, body? Is beauty racialized?
In Beauty and Race I am examining how the Western European definition of beauty affects women’s self identity and self-image; the consistent idealization, objectification and over sexualized images from the media bombard women everyday. Consequently, women are altering themselves physically and psychologically and becoming disjointed and fragmented to fit into this unrealistic model.
