Women and selfesteem In the daily fight for the emancipation of women and the pressures and influence of advertising, women of all ages are coerced into physical and psychological self-torment trying to achieve an optimum look or image. This is something not limited to a few. One can see the work of television advertisers in high schools everyday as girls wear the same clothing, makeup and accessories as their favorite stars. They may also try to imitate models they see in teen magazines. While

Unfortunately, this role was often negative, without cause to be so. Edith Whartons Ethan Frome and F.

He also discusses the importance of love in proper measure. Sex still plays an important part in Hartmann\'s discussion of
