On this episode I'll be discussing society’s obsession with body image and body shaming. We see it in the media on awards shows or on shows like the fashion police. We may overhear someone on the street make comments about what the next woman may or may not be wearing. We see it in the comments section of social media websites like Facebook and Instagram.
