I hate to stereotype people and organizations but I can’t say that I’m surprised by this recent study that shows that women in sororities are more like to have body image problems.
This topic is bound to be a bit controversial, so I suggest you click on over to ScienceDaily to read about it more detail. But the bottom line is that women who rushed a sorority had higher levels of self-objectification and disordered eating behaviors than among women who did not take part. According to the article, this is the first study to test objectification theory in a real-life context.
What do YOU think? Have you (or someone you know) had an experience with sorority life that’s changed your self image? Leave a comment and share your thought and concerns with the rest of the Beauty Brains community.
