How does media influence young girls?
KVAL News went to Kipster's Gymnastics in Eugene to share the paper doll study with some mothers and daughters.

"One's a little bit more sexy definitely," said LeeAnn McBee of Springfield.

Bethani Rivera also has a 6-year-old daughter in the gymnastics class. "I think it's sad and I think it's a testament to the power that advertisement and pop culture has on our young children."

Nicole Comstock from KVAL News looked at the research and talked to girls and their mothers for a story set to air on KVAL News at 5 p.m. Thursday, November 15.
