It makes complete sense that as the feminist movements took shape, so did Americans' ideals of a skinnier woman. Since divorce became more socially acceptable as well as dating, even as far as the sexual movement, women may have taken a completely different look at themselves. Knowing that it wasn't as drastic a taboo anymore to want and work for attention from more than one man led women to work more on their personal appearances. Why the media makes us idolize the twig-skinny celebrities I'm not sure I have a clear of opinion of. Maybe its the assumed correlation of thinness and wealth. If you are thin then you must have the extra time to exercise, cook healthy foods, and diet. You must have the extra money to afford organic and healthier options. Atleast to me it seems as if people have begun to connect excess weight with poverty and lack of weight with excess finances.
