Additional Information:This book draws on sociological and psychosocial theory and the author's own research to examine the problematic nature of the relationship between young women and their bodies. Contemporarily, there has been an absence of theory or primary research examining this relationship. Yet a range of sources - morbidity statistics on eating disorders and other body disorders, the media and the voices of girls themselves - seemed to point to the combination of youth and female gendering as generative of particular difficulties of embodiment, and worthy of specific attention.
Uncontrolled Keywords:young women, women's bodies, body image, feminist sociology, eating disorders, self-harm, self-hatred, dysmorphic disorder
