Learning what it is to be a woman in today's society could be the largest mountain any female has to cross. Adolescent females are suffocated with an uncountable number of media images that tell them how to look, what to eat, how to develop relationships with men, and more. These images are often saturated with ideals of an unobtainable female self, known as ?la femme provocateur.? Unsurprisingly, these images can prove to be damaging to the self esteem and body image of an adolescent girl who is already facing the trials of puberty and growing up, as it is undeniable that the role of the media and relationship with bodies can not be overlooked (Cash et al., 2004). With all of this damage being done, can - and how do we stop it from going to far? Previous studies have shown that in some cases, education can be the number one preventative measure. Little research has been conducted to explore this though, especially in the case of adolescent females, and therefore, one must ask can you raise the self esteem and body image of adolescent girls through media education implementation? This study hopes to explore the correlation between media and the self esteem and self perception of the adolescent female.

[...] We do not seem to pay attention to what we are pushing constantly onto the younger generation, as we feed them advertisements and messages about sex and objectification, sex and alcohol, sex and beauty and in addition do little to empower them in their sexual decision making, or make much effort to understand the processing of sexual images (Rouner et al., 2003) such as the ?femme provocateur.? Adolescent Effects and Self Esteem Though these images of the ?femme provocateur? are complex and reach all ages, races, and creeds, the persons that they impact most are young adolescent girls.
