Through the centuries, the image and role of women have taken several forms. However, women have always been confronted with very restricted stereotypes of beauty. Historically, society and the media define the standards of beauty that most women seek to comply.

From the 60s, the cult of thinness and youth prevailed until today. A silhouette which is slender, and even skinny, has become the ideal of beauty conveyed by the media and haute couture. This reign of thinness is even more apparent: 20 years ago, most models weighed 8% less than the average woman, and today, the difference is about 23% less.
