Development of Neighborhoods in Chicago - ... Not many other ethnicities lived in these areas because they were not as financially secure as the Irish had become due to all the work they had received over the years.

Trends in Media and Body Dissatisfaction - ... Furthermore, women were found to be more satisfied with their bodies than men in 1966, and less-satisfied in 1996. Women’s psychological investment in their appearance is less pronounced than it was in early to mid-1990s. Other scholars argue that this may have served as a protective factor against a negative evaluative body image and its psychosocial consequences (Cash, Melnyk, & Hrabosky 2004). Many studies have proposed that the concept of body comparison (i.e. the tendency of comparing one body with that of another) may be a potential mediator of sociocultural factors and body dissatisfactions in both genders (Berg, Paxton, Keery, Wall, Guo, & Neumark-Sztainer (2007)....   [tags: Media, Thin-Ideal Body] 967 words
