Jacqueline Reyes Annotated Bibliography Professor Trent EN102 11/17/10 Women Beauty Standards: An Annotated Bibliography Anderberg, Kirsten. “The Images of Beauty Are Unrealistic and Hurt Women.” Opposing Viewpoints Series: The Culture of Beauty . Ed. Roman Espejo. Farmington Hills: Greenhaven, 2010. Print. The article mainly talks about the damage images are having on women’s self esteem. The “weight loss industry” gains millions of dollars yearly by promoting its products to women who are self conscious of themselves. These women are manipulated to think that they must lose weight in order to be accepted by society. Anderberg tells the story about a former cover model of many popular magazines, Ann Simonton, who became a body activist after an incident she encountered during a photo shoot. As she and the rest of the models were getting ready for the shoot, she kept hearing the constant complaint these models had about themselves. They were not satisfied with their own body, this was a sign for Ann of how ridiculous the modeling industry has become. It has created beauty standards to become unattainable, standards that models themselves don’t feel they achieve. I will use this source as a supporting example to show how magazine are causing women to have self esteem issues, which leads them to go to extreme measures to look like the models they see in magazines. Franke-Ruta, Garance. “Women Can Choose to Follow the Body Image Promoted by the Fashion Industry.” Opposing Viewpoints Series: The Culture of Beauty . Ed. Roman Espejo. Farmington Hills: Greenhaven, 2010. Print.

This article is an opposing argument to the idea that thin models influence women to have body image issues and eating disorders. Garance explains that Americans think that beauty comes naturally, but this is not the case. It takes effort to keep that glowing image going. It is up to people on how they choose to present themselves; they cannot expect that by doing nothing they will look like models on magazines. It takes work and discipline to get a thin figure; it is ultimately the person’s choice. The author finds nothing wrong with this. She further explains how celebrity magazines are tutorials to help women create a better image of themselves. This image is not unattainable because series like “what not to wear” help women have the chance to achieve this beauty. I will use this as an opposing argument to my issue. To acknowledge the view point that support and believe magazines to have a positive effect on women’s beauty standards. Gibbons, Sheila. “Teen Magazines Send Girls All the Wrong Messages.” Womensnews. 29 October 2003. Web. 15 November 2010. This article talks about the mix and negative messages magazines are giving young girls.
