Young women’s perception of body shape/weight and health: A measurement problem (pp. 277-287) $45.00
Authors:  Said Shahtahmasebi and Bernadette Cassidy
Abstract:
Frequently women are targeted by the media through visual images linking body shape with health and healthy behaviour implying a socially ideal body shape/weight. One of the consequences of targeting women in this way is the impact on women’s mental health and overall wellbeing. Research in this area often uses subjective variables to observe complex psycho-social and emotional well-being. Subjective variables, due to their temporal dependencies, give rise to additional complexities. This paper provides a discussion of these complexities, and, uses a secondary data source to illustrate substantive issues related to defining, measuring, and analysing attitudes and perceptions of health and overall wellbeing in relation to body shape.
