  9. victorialeerod asked: Hi! I created a blog for my English 102 course at the University of Arizona. I was wondering if you could refer your followers to either write an ask or comment on a post with their opinions on the images media presents standardizing body image to the blog bodyimageinmedia. This would help me so much in providing my class with insight to the audience I am targeting and spreading the word about the negative effect media has. Thank you so much! (Again the blog is bodyimageinmedia)

    Of course!

    Everyone, please go to her blog here and write in the ask box what you think about how body image is reflected in the media. The blog has also been added to the “Great Body Image Blogs” page!
