INTRODUCTION

Body image is an image that we have created in our minds. Body image has a great impact on the psychological and‌ internal‌ states of a person. On the other hand self-esteem is self-respect and worth that a person performs towards her/himself (1). The prevalence of body dissatisfaction is a major concern, because it‌ is‌ associated with mental disorders such as: decreased self-confidence, depression, social anxiety, eating disorders and diseases related to bad body shape (2). Today, sport and physical activity as a treatment is‌ considered‌ more for body image disturbance (3). Exercise can reduce mental disorders and body image dissatisfaction which can be substantially preventive and therapeutic methods (4). The aim of this study was investigation‌ the‌ body‌ image and self-esteem differences‌ according‌ to‌ the role of gender in students of Islamic Azad universities in Tehran.
