The Objectified Body Consciousness Scale: Development and Validation.
McKinley, Nita Mary; Hyde, Janet Shibley
Psychology of Women Quarterly, v20 n2 p181-215 Jun 1996
Using feminist theory about the social construction of the female body, a scale was developed and validated to measure objectified body consciousness in young women (n=502) and middle-age women (n=151) using surveillance, body shame, and appearance control beliefs. The three scales were demonstrated to be distinct dimensions with acceptable reliabilities. (SLD)
