Abstract
In this essay, we research the ideal way to look and behave seen from two of Sweden's largest weekly magazines intended for young women, Veckorevyn and Frida. In our study we cover two issues of these respective magazines. We found that in correlaton to similar studies both magazines likes to portray women as skinny, usually blonde or brunette with next to perfect skin. We also found that both magazines try to encourage the reader to feel satisfied and comfortable with their own body and personality. This makes for a stark contrast where the reader is told to look and behave a certain way, while also being themselves.
