I have come across various ideas for the paper. Obviously I want to incorporate self image and confidence relating to women, but I also searched for different reasons for how the lacking of self image has impeded romantic and close relationships with others.
In both the books I read, the main characters struggled connecting with their significant other due to the lacking base of self esteem. It’s also important to realize all the environmental attributes that have affected society into thinking they need to look and be a certain way that is “acceptable”. I have found that sometimes acceptable to some may not be healthy to all and it can really take a toll on one’s life pertaining to eating disorders and lowered self esteem. I think my alternate sources can deeply relate to everyone. The dove campaign, for example explains how little women appreciate themselves, by asking women what they like best about their body. In the videos they are all left speechless. Yet, they can point out unique qualities of their friends. It’s an interesting concept that they don’t see themselves in a positive light and left unable to speak remotely nice about themselves. It has become to a point where women can’t name one great quality about their self. What does this mean about society? How can we change this? I’m intrigued to discover the underlying causes concerning this topic.
