Feminist Consciousness and Objectified Body Consciousness
McKinley, Nita Mary
Psychology of Women Quarterly, v35 n4 p684-688 Dec 2011
The author has been asked to write about how her article "The Objectified Body Consciousness Scale: Development and Validation" (McKinley & Hyde, 1996) came to be published in "Psychology of Women Quarterly" ("PWQ"). In this article, she recalls the contexts in which she developed her ideas about objectified body consciousness (OBC), the process of getting her work published, and what has been learned about OBC and body surveillance. She also argues that people need to give more attention to the power of the contexts in which OBC take place.
