  3. 3. WHAT IS BPD?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dy2XU1adHZI BPD is defined by the DSM as a pervasive pattern ofinstability of interpersonal relationships, self-image, and affects, andmarked impulsivity beginning by early adulthood and present in avariety of contexts.
  4. 4. BPD AND WOMEN Cultural feminist perspective 75% of diagnoses are women; women are three times more likelyto be diagnosed with BPD than men Symptoms of BPD mimic, and subsequently uphold, commongender stereotypes about women. BPD is stigmatized by both society and medical staff, creating adouble bind for women with the disorder.
  5. 5. MEDIA ANALYSIS Brandon Marshall‟s PSA, although doing good by raising BPDawareness, still leaves the needs of women with BPD undervaluedand unrecognized. Women wrestle not only with their mental health, but also genderstereotypes and the stigma surrounding BPD. Women have a multi-faceted gendered experience with BPD that men, like BrandonMarshall, do not.
  6. 6. THE EFFECT OF BODYIMAGE ON MENTAL HEALTH Women and girls are much more likely to develop eating disorders in factonly 5-15% of cases of eating disorders involve men. In a Study done by the American Academy of Pediatrics on a group of 5485th to 12th grade girls, 47% of girls said they wanted to lose weight because ofimages they saw in fashion magazines. The British Medical Association said that the epidemic of waif-like modelsis fueling an epidemic of anorexia and bulimia. “Many Current Models meetthe weight criteria for anorexia.”(Crawford, p. 67, 2012)

  8. 8. MENTAL BURDEN ON WOMEN “By far, the majority of gender construction in contemporary industrialized cultures takesplace through women‟s appearance.”(Crawford, p. 34, 2012) In my Movie Clip Rosie‟s character is burden with the responsibility to explain theunattainable , fake beauty of the images that her guy friends are judging regular women by. Because Rosie is not stereotypically beautiful you can hear her mental stress and torment shefeels by the portrayals of women in magazines and media Fashion Magazines have been proven to fuel eating disorders In a study done at an eating disorder clinic, 28 women were studied, there was a strongcorrelation between exacerbation of and onset of there eating disorders due to reading andidolization of women in fashion magazines.
  9. 9. SELF-OBJECTIFICATION AND EATING DISORDERS Self-Objectification causes women and girls mental tasks to be very divided. In eating disorders self-surveillance takes up the majority of women‟s time,monitoring food intake, what she is eating, controlling her hunger, keeping herdisorder secret and worrying about how she looks. Often times women take on eating disorders because of social comparisonprocess and the low self –esteem it produces. Rosie however, exposes the lie‟s behind the idealized standards of beautyproduced by the media as completely unnatural and not the norm.
