Thanks to a recent positive struggle for female equality, helped by the presence of social media, the discussion about body image and body standards is more open than ever.

Women around the world denounce the impossible standards suggested by runways, movies and especially fashion magazines, where most girls are photoshopped and modified in order to reach the ideal shape.

Buzzfeed contributed with this clever video which illustrates women’s ideal body types through history, making clear once and for all that every era has its own. The video covers around 3,000 years, and makes a point: from ancient Egyptians all the way to the current idea of beauty, what we see is a continuously changing female figure.
