Women are popularly portrayed in the media and inacademic literature as being dissatisfied with theirbodies. This has created an environment where women'sbodies have been framed as 'problematic'. This bookexamines the discourse of the 'problem' body and theways in which women come to interpret and understandthis discourse over the course of their lives.Life-history interviews were conducted with 20 womenbetween the ages of 20 and 60 with the aim ofdeveloping the already existing research and data onthis topic. The themes that emerged from thenarratives of the 20 women include an array ofexperiences; stories of childhood teasing, dieting,media perceptions, pregnancy and motherhood, lifechanging moments and personal stories on aging. Thisbook sheds further light on the complexities ofwomen's bodily perceptions, particularly changes andconsistencies over the life course and would be ofinterest to anyone looking to explore the area ofbody image and perceptions.
