Why do women want to be thin?

Why do women want to be thin, fragile and physically weak when we can be strong, and independently empowered?

If you raise daughters, please influence them to follow their heart and not society, encourage them to stand up for themselves and create their lives according to their goals, push them to go on adventures and see the world, let them feel free and self responsible.

Enlighten them that looks are worthless without strong personality, focus and drive and no matter what... explain to them that being cute or sexy on social media is not the purpose in life.

"A well-built physique is a status symbol. It reflects you worked hard for it, no money can buy it. You cannot inherit it. You cannot steal it. You cannot borrow it. You cannot hold on to it without constant work. It shows dedication. It shows discipline. It shows self-respect. It shows dignity. It shows patience, work ethic, passion. That is why it's attractive to me .
