Kelly how do we find out our assignment # 3 grades??


This group is about fighting the perceptions that women have to look a certain way. The way women are being portrayed in the media is causing harm to their self-esteem and the way they look at themselves and others. By trying to manipulate them to change themselves into the ways the media makes women seem like they have to look in order to be “Beautiful”.
