Oxygen Media recently conducted a study of 2,000 women, age 18-34. The study found that 25% would rather win "America's Next Top Model" than be a Nobel Prize winner. What this means, of course, is that 3/4 of the women surveyed have enough self-esteem and common sense to say "I'd rather win a Nobel Prize."
The study also found that 91% would rather "live a long life and lose their looks than die young and beautiful."
So much for the stereotypical thought that today's young women only care about looks and staying youthful.
