Females are continuously under the pressure of looking attractive and this is being considered as one of the most negative things according to 47% of the people who were asked to vote by Girlguiding UK.

One of the important findings of the survey was that more than half of the girls believe that media has been portraying women in a way that encourages women to take to strict dieting. This in turn is damaging their health.

The movement led by Girlguiding is against magazines and they are asking them to label the airbrushed celebrity pictures so that they do not set unrealistic beauty standards for youngsters, says a report published in www.telegraph.co.uk. The girls of today believe that the world around them is full of stress and can lead them into serious health complications. The researchers are of the belief that the girls’ point of view should be supported to enable them to develop self-esteem. The survey took into consideration more than 1,200 girls in the age group 7-21.
