Women and Objectified Body Consciousness: Mothers' and Daughters' Body Experience in Cultural, Developmental, and Familial Context.
McKinley, Nita Mary
Developmental Psychology, v35 n3 p760-69 May 1999
Examined age differences in objectified body consciousness (OBC) based on cultural, developmental, and familial contexts of women's body experience in undergraduate women and their middle-aged mothers. Found that mothers scored lower on surveillance and body shame. Found no differences in appearance-control beliefs, body-esteem, or restricted eating. Found that OBC was related to psychological well-being. (Author/KB)
