What Were the Beauty Standards in Ancient Rome?
Back in college, we often hear female schoolmates complaining that they were not pretty enough. They usually make this rant after breakups with their boyfriends, or as an aftermath of being ignored by their crushes. Years later and I got employed, and not living up to the standards of female aesthetics is still a problem among female employees (particularly younger ones). Thankfully, there is always someone out there to remind them to keep their heads up. Going back to college, I know this girl who was good at offering advises to her broken peers. And in the office, more mature female employees acted like big sisters to their less confident co-workers. I’m not sure if it’s mere coincidence, but they offer the same words of wisdom.
