Christy Beck, a researcher at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, is conducting a study on lesbian women's beauty standards in relation to their breasts. And she's looking for a few Memphis women to participate.
The study will explore how lesbians view mainstream beauty standards, as well as standards within lesbian subculture. Participants will be asked about their feelings on breast development, sexuality, gender identity, feminist identity, romantic relationships, media messages, and the lesbian subculture.
Participants must be lesbians (or women with same-sex attractions who may not label themselves as lesbians). They must have been living a lesbian identity for at least two years and be between the ages of 18 and 30.
