Does Patriarchy forces women to be thin?

In gender equal countries like Northern Europe, UK, Canada and Western Europe, women are healthy looking. But if you go to Eastern parts of Europe, most women are unhealthily thin.

Is it due to the fact that patriarchy is very high in Eastern Europe which forces them to be weak and thin.?? Since in less patriarchy countries, women are strong and healthy.

    How do you "force" women to be thin? Do you think they're controlling their food intake? It is probably because they have different genetics,  good eating habits or don't have as much to eat as women in other countries.

    Don't forget that there are some very poor third world countries in that area (not all, of course).  When you're very poor you can't eat much, so you are skinny!
