Insights on body image at Bustle.com (4/29/30)

I was very excited to offer my insights recently to Deanna Michalopoulos at Bustle.com – we discussed the continued impact mass media has on women’s body image. Specifically, we discussed cropped images of women’s bodies in conjunction with the rhetoric of “good health.”

Deanna wrote a wonderful, deeply personal piece. My conversation with her reminded me of issues related to body and health and media that really sparked my interest in sociology so many years ago – thank you, Deanna!
