Does the media perpetuate unhelpful stereotypes of women? Does this create body image anxiety among women?

Talking about media’s role in perpetuating unhelpful stereotypes of women, I would say that media in this case is the main convict. First of all creating such stereotypes, and secondly continuously profiting by creating such body image anxiety followed by marketing beauty and fitness products.

We as someone’s friend, husband or brother have to look past the materialist features projected as beauty. We ourselves have to eradicate such stereotypes and make the women in our lives understand that being comfortable with yourself is beautiful, being confident with who you are is sexy, and we as men don’t care about how a women look as long as she is a good person and beautiful from within.
