What kinds of mental imagery do the women’s choices evoke? How do you see Mari? What about Sari? Studies have shown that our attitudes toward food are often inadvertently accompanied by a moral undertone.

Social norms also easily determine what and how much a woman is allowed to eat before she causes disapproval, for example.
