I tried to google for female body self esteem statistic. It seem that on a statistic basis women tend to see themselves as not being enough.

I wonder if there are evidence that this problem is related to social media pressures and if there is a gender bias on body acceptance related especially to western countries.

    $\begingroup$ Perhaps this is a "Western-World" problem due to the western media's ridiculous perception of beauty. Have you checked statistics for other parts of the world? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Not an exact duplicate, but very close: cogsci.stackexchange.com/questions/12115/…, and I do cover physical attractiveness in my answer, though not specifically body acceptance. $\endgroup$
