Young girls are just as susceptible to feelings of inadequacy as the rest of the world, finds a study.
At as tender an age as 10, young girls report feeling depressed and even considering plastic surgery as a result of the media attention focusing on the looking as perfect as celebrities.
The girls feel pressure from marketing directed at young girls that says they should look and dress a certain way, including wearing make-up, sexy clothes and even lose weight and have plastic surgery to achieve celebrity status.
The findings, which were published in Girlguilding UK, paint a rather bleak view that a new generation of girls is growing up obsessed with looks and possessions.
