Women and girls have heard that they need to hide their bodies from sight in order to avoid ruffling feathers for too long. How, exactly, are girls supposed to walk the razor-thin line between these extremes while maintaining self-worth and self-respect? The study from Oregon State University suggests women who post revealing pics on social media sites like Facebook and Instagram are viewed by fellow women as less competent and less socially and physically attractive. Researcher Elizabeth Daniels created two profiles for a fictitious year-old women named Amanda Johnson. The study authors suggest that women and girls should select images that speak to their identities, such as pictures of them engaged in activities they like doing. What about a young black woman or a Latina teen? Daniels said the study showed a need for parents and teachers to discuss online behaviour with teens and young adults.
