My dissertation has been coming along very nicely after I really delved into the female bodybuilding chapter. This chapter was needing a lot of tweaking as i had not fully formed it yet, there is little parts of editing that still need to be done for this chapter to be finished. I made a case study of retired body builder Bev Francis and made a comparison of her body shape and image through out the seven years she competed for the Ms. Olympia contest from 1983 to 1991 when she subsequently came second again. I Made the comparison of her image as she transformed her body to a more feminine body ideal where she adorned herself with pink bikinis, blonde hair and more excessive makeup. I am currently writing up my ethnographic research on my findings in the gym environment on gender performance which is proving incredibly interesting and illuminating on the mechanics of mundane gender acts.
