Self-Help Market Writing Sample: E-Mail Marketing Message

“The Culture Of Thinness:” It Wants YOUR Daughter!

The media’s “Culture of Thinness” has a sinister message for your daughter: Be skinnier, be sexier, be more beautiful, or you’re a failure.

Whether through television, print, video, or audio, the media demands that your daughter obey their rigid definition of what it is to be attractive and successful today.

And the stakes are high—for the media, for your daughter.

The media and their advertisers are raking in millions of dollars, according to the Media Awareness Network.  How?  From girls whose low self-image causes them to buy more beauty products, newer clothes, and additional diet aids.

Alternately, young girls who are exposed to these ultra-skinny models and praise of this stereotype, often suffer depression, loss of self-esteem, and unhealthy eating habits including eating disorders, notes the network.

Sadly, these unhealthy habits of weight control can include fasting, skipping meals, excessive exercise, laxative abuse, and even self-induced vomiting.

Think your daughter isn’t affected?

Thirty-five percent of girls 6 to 12 years old have dieted at least once, and 50 to 70 percent of normal weight girls believe they are overweight, Teen Magazine reports.
