Online Survey: Asian American Women Body Image

A colleague of mine asked me to post the following announcement about an online survey that some of her students are conducting about body image among Asian American women. The survey should take about 15-20 minutes to complete. Please consider helping them out and contributing your opinion by taking the survey.


We are conducting a preliminary survey on body image among Asian American women. The study is for Professor Miliann Kang’s Women Studies course, “Asian American Women” at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

As a participant, you should be a college student who identifies as female. If you decide to be part of the survey, participation should take 15-20 minutes. You will be asked personal questions about your body image. If a question makes you uncomfortable, you do not have to answer it. You are also able to stop filling out the survey at any time. Conversely, if you have a story to tell or a comment to say, we welcome and appreciate any additional elaboration.

Your survey responses will be strictly confidential and data from this research will be reported only in the aggregate. The information you provide will be used for the class project and will be presented in class (Dec 3 and Dec 5, 2007). If you have questions at any time about the survey or the procedures, you can contact me at 626-588-8949 or via email at

Thank you for your assistance.
