How Female Beauty is perceived in different Cultures.
The topic I have chosen for my peer report on poster presentation is “How Female Beauty is perceived in different Cultures” the reason I chose this topic is because of the predominant features of beauty in the 20th century and how it is a constant importance of outward appearance in the lives of many women today, even those who reject 20th century cultural norms. People all come from different backgrounds and cultural traditions. What is considered to be attractive or beautiful can vary drastically from one individual to another. What people perceive to be ugly can be incredibly beautiful in another part of the world. From fashion, cosmetics, plastic surgery to body modification a preoccupation that affects women in every sphere, whether they chose to pander to it or not. My initial attraction to the poster was how the use of colour, graphics and other visuals enhanced the presentation. The poster was well organised easy to follow and neat and appealing to look at. Pictures of the Burqa to lip disc (Labret) to American beauty pageants showed a diversity of how beauty is depicted in different cultures and in an ever increasing multicultural society that we live in today. Although words were easy to read and the uses of theories were registered such as Assimilation, Acculturation and Social comparison theory, there was a lack of written expression and referencing. However, this was adequately compensated by the presenter’s response to questions which demonstrated knowledge of the subject matter and project. Overall in my opinion the poster was well prepared and designed to users easily and effectively.
