The report by the charity 'Girlguiding' also revealed that young women are judged harshly for sexual behavior that is seen as acceptable in boys and are under media pressure to conform to stereotyped versions of beauty.

The study has shown that online bullying and abuse is also on the rise, and several girls, influenced by the media and advertising, are spending substantial sums on beauty products.
