How Kate Winslet Taught Me I'm Not Showing My Daughters the Right Things About Body Image

How Kate Winslet Taught Me I'm Not Showing My Daughters the Right Things About Body Image | The Human Body | Scoop.it
Recently, I’ve started to see my daughters’ bodies changing. Not quite puberty yet, but a little rounder here, a little curvier there. Yep, it’s almost time to have “the talks” in my house.

I’ve done my best to protect their body images.
Terry Hill, PhDs insight:

These 'rights of passage' discussions can be remembered for life, and can set the stage for how 'presentation of self' is formulated as life continues. But it is peer pressure about body image that has the greatest effect, especially through the experimental teen years. 

Physical changes must adapt to enough fashion values to make you comfortable in public, yet true to your individual needs, and perhaps eventually those of your family. It often becomes a balance game between risk and tradition. Successful risk-taking in fashion can work to greatly bolster self-esteem; unsuccessful risk-taking can have permanent self-concept damage.

Terry Hill, PhDs insight:

Symbolic interactionism can be a powerful theory in sociology to explain human behaviour. 

What values are being expressed here? How would your impressions change if they were a) all in blue jeans, b) all in pyjamas , c) all in uniforms, d) all nude?  How does context encourage fashion?  If these women were 85 years old, how would wearing the same dresses affect our perceptions of the female body? What power is there in colour?
