We sent our survey out for feedback from faculty that Dr. Montgomery had connected us with.  When we received the feedback, one of the faculty members asked us why we were focusing on only women.  I had to think about that a little bit.  I wasn't sure why we were focusing only on women.  Why not beauty in men as well? My first thoughts were that it would just be must easier to only focus on women.  However, when I thought longer about this question, I came to the conclusion that as a young woman I am very influenced by certain social expectations.  I love being healthy and in the media that is sometimes considered fat.  I have been very self conscious before about my weight and my figure.  Through my own experiences I'm convinced that young women are the most influenced by these different thoughts about women.
