Females obsession with beauty : To emphasize your femininity and get correct forms (English)
Abstract [en]

Beauty ideal is a word which can generate strong emotions and the meaning of the ideals differ depending on where you are. The beauty industry has never been more popular than today and the sector is growing increasingly. I therefore decided to return to my country of origin Iran in order to talk to people about their views on beauty. I wanted to find out what people in Iran think is beautiful among Iranian women and what makes an Iranian woman beautiful. I have interviewed women, men and children of different ages and social status, in Teheran and in the countryside about their views of beauty in Iranian women.
