In today's society, looks are everything. The female body is used in various ways, whether by the media or advertisers trying to sell a product. With such importance placed on how a female looks, it is not surprising that many young women today are suffering from low self esteem and body image issues. It is unfortunate that due to the pressure the media is putting on females today, anorexia and bulimia are becoming more of a pressing issue. Women today are more concerned with the way that society perceives them, as opposed to actually being healthy and feeling their best.
