This image gets the point across that men and women share this desire of self perception and one having to be perfect.

6 What effect takes place when the words are emitted? When you take the words away, you see a woman holding a fork and knife, it looks like she is ready to eat a meal. You’re thinking what is the point? But with the words you see that “Set them Free” means that all young women should be free to be themselves and not to be controlled by society in who and what they should look like.

8 Ethical AppealThe ethos appeal is found in the bottom right corner of the image. This picture is from a Israel cite called Beitech, A Non Profit Organization For Woman With Eating Disorder.The image what photographed by Photographer: Israel Cohen.
10 The emotional appeal is.. Pathos covers all sorts of emotions.. The emotion you feel when you first see this picture is remorse. The young girl in the image is holding her fork and knife in a position that seems to me, “ready to eat.” The positioning of her hands accentuates the purpose of the image, to create a remorse towards anorexia and movement to end it.
12 The Logos appeal is..The Logos appeal within this image the logical appeal would be the purpose of Beitech creating this advertisement and posting it. Through background research many countries in the West in the past few years have experienced many cases of the disease Anorexia Nervosa. One very important add that has blown the European Modeling agency is the case of Isabella Caro. Caro was a French model, she was 13 years old when she was diagnosed with Anorexia Nervosa she died in 2010 from a unknown cause at the age of 28. Caro was photographed in the beginning of 2010 for a Advertisement to show the effects of Anorexia. She quotes "I wanted to show, in its raw state, the full horror of anorexia," Caro said in a quote translated from French. Specialists who treat eating disorders say Caro's untimely death sends the message she wanted to send to others while she was alive. From this story more advertisements about Anorexia Nervosa were posted for those to learn more about this terrible disease both men and women can experience. So the Logos in this picture is related back to Caro’s death in 2010 shortly before this picture was posted in European countries. Her family believes it to be from this disease but at this point no one knows, Anorexia is a disease where the person suffers for a long period of time.. Set them Free.. Help the agencies to solve this problem and for patients able to receive the help they need.
