Girls can never be alone
Girls are expected to be the
perfect role models in school "A Day in the Life" of a Teenage Girl "Girls are expected to do
household chores." "Girls are expected to always look their best" "Mothers report that their daughters perform
over twice as many tasks as their sons" (Benin
and Edwards 362). "Research has shown that 45% to 62% of articles in teen fashion magazines focused on appearance and that only 30% or less focused on identity or self development" (Wykes 95) "Girls are never alone" "Girls are expected to keep
a slim physique" <<<< Factors such as early or late maturity can create a need for companionship. "Girls are expected to be
perfect role models in school" 1. "Picking up" around the house = 41 girls (82%)

is as important as LOOKING fit
(a Bedford group) (Heinecken 32). "Out of 2,500 school girls, aged between 13 and 18, 3/4 said they wanted to lose weight and 2/3 had dieted in the last year to lose weight" (Wykes and Gunter 1). "Says Cynthia, 'There were really constant rules: you had to be a lady, you had to perfect, your grades had to be exceptional. Because of this...I didn't have my own identity'"
(Funk 11). References: These stereotypes may be considered natural or normal, but we must recognize that many outside factors influence teenage girls into the ideas of these stereotypes. In the Morning At school Throughout the
