Embrace your Mighty Hips, Barbie Doll

30 Nov

  In the following blog, I will be discussing issues with body image and self-esteem, based on the poems “Barbie Doll” by Marge Piercy and “Homage to my Hips” by Lucille Clifton. Due to societal standards of beauty, young girls are lead to believe that being skinny is the only way to be beautiful. The media also contributes a great deal of influence on young girls. The goal of my blog is to raise awareness in young girls about being swayed by what society thinks is beautiful.
