The basis of this research paper examines the effect the mass Media has on an adolescent girl's body image. The media has a very powerful effect on virtually all society, particularly young girls. The mass media depicts unrealistic images of beauty, which have led many adolescent girls to serious and life threatening heights. Girls go to extreme measures to imitate society's impractical beliefs of beauty. The result of this is that diet pills, eating disorders, and cosmetic surgeries have become too common for adolescent girls. This research paper presents current information on this issue and some possible solutions.

Adolescents today are extremely influenced by external factors. These factors include, but are not limited to, family, religion, education technology, and the media. 'Among these, the mass media have been identified as the most pervasive and the most powerful.' (Harper, 2008).

Success and worth are often equated with being thin in popular culture. Peer pressure and what people see in the media may fuel this desire to be thin, particularly among young girls.' (Mayo Clinic, 2010).

Over time, beauty standards for adolescent girls has evolved and changed. History would suggest that it was not until the late twentieth century that thinness was desirable. We can see that as recently as the 1950's. A good example of this was Marilyn Monroe. In her heyday, many adolescent girls considered Ms. Monroe the epitome of beauty. Many aspired to look like

her (blond hair, red lips, curvy figure). Ms. Monroe was a size twelve. In today's society, if a young girl is a size 12, she considers it a death sentence.
