In the countries of opulence, the image a successful woman is not linked to her special skills, but rather to an aesthetic model where a women has to be lean, powerful, rich, sexually attractive and successful. The cult of aesthetic values is such that only what is considered beautiful can also be good, and tends to use beauty as an indicator of the qualities of a person.
Thus, for many women, in particular for the very young girls, having a body that respects the prevailing aesthetic canons becomes a must for social relations.
When everything is based on the body as a source of autonomy, control and security, it is essential to change eating habits up to the extreme choice to refuse food, in order to create a “protected” environment both physically and on the affective, cognitive and social level.
For the previous generations of women, the body was the place of reflection and feminist practice, but the current fragmentation of society and the consequent need for security that uncertain conditions bring, lead to a “re-signification” of the body. The search for a dimension of body-safe, is expressed through various processes, from piercings to tattoos to plastic surgery. These actions serve to give to the body a meaning, which is not collective but self-made, unique and individual. The need for security and the response to the uncertanty of existence pass through these body resignification techniques that invest in an all-encompassing people of the rich world countries, so as to transform the body into a place to experience speculations and market.
