VIDEO: Ladybrille’s Uduak Oduok Appears on AL JAZEERA, World-Renowned News Network, Discusses Evolving Standards of Beauty in Africa #AJStream #bodyimage

Dear Ladybrillers,

I had the opportunity to be invited as a guest on AL Jazeera, a world-renowned news network, to discuss body image and changing standards of beauty.

A Ladybrille reader recommended me as a guest. Thank you.

You can watch the show and what I had to say below.

“Reshaping Beauty

They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but based on Western media portrayals a beautiful woman is usually 180 centimetres and weighs 50 kilograms. As women and men on the covers of magazines become thinner, eating disorders become bigger. So, do you associate being overweight with being ugly? And does this standard dictate non-Western perceptions of the ideal body?”

Yours Truly,
