Trying to look a certain way, in order to conform to what society believes to be beautiful, is nothing new for the women of the world. Unfortunately for us females, there’s always been an epitome of beauty that women have attempted to mimic throughout the years. Trying to fit into this ideal has posed different types of challenges, some even life threatening, like constricting corsets in the Victorian Era or eating disorders in today’s society. These health consequences are only the beginning of the negative effects that trying to fit in causes on a woman’s body and mind. It’s shocking to see what use to be considered beautiful, but it’s even more shocking when you read about the unattainable goals women put in place for ourselves today.
