Sabrina Strings is a sociology professor at the University of California, Irvine and she studies how racism plays into beauty standards, something she's experienced personally as a Black woman. She points out that society's ideal body ignores the fact that women come in a whole range of shapes and sizes. "I think that young Black women - and also I think women across race - are constantly under pressure about their appearance."
