The paper states that no media outlet strives to influence public perception more than fashion magazines, and in their quest to mold public opinion, fashion magazines have had a negative impact on how women perceive their bodies. The paper comments that the consequences have been frightening. Images of overly-thin fashion models have had a negative effect on the self-esteem of women, and this low self-esteem has led to dangerous conditions, such as eating disorders. The paper highlights that the desire to be thin among American women, which has largely been driven by media influence, affects even the youngest females who are not overweight. The paper concludes that it is time for the fashion magazine industry to stop claiming that it cannot control this problem.
