Why is objectifying women a harmful practice?
Weegy: "Advertising and media images that encourage girls to focus on looks and sexuality are harmful to their emotional and physical health, [ a new report by the American Psychological Association says."1 Women develop the ideal of seeing their bodies as not their personal self, but as sexual objects. That unhealthy train of thought can develop into recurring problems such as eating disorders, low self-esteem, and depression. These problems are directly linked to sexualized images in advertising and media entertainment such as this. ] (More)
