This study explored whether or not sexualization in the media translates into lower levels of self-worth among women and men of varying ages. Participants included individuals from the Norwich University population as well as from the surrounding communities. The hypothesis was that viewing sexualized images will produce a significant decrease in self-worth in men and women of varying ages and that this effect will be greater in females, who are sexualized more intensely than males.
