It is said, not shown, that Nomi’s father kills her mother and then kill himself. It’s implied that she had an abusive, traumatic childhood.

Not shown but some dialogue might be triggering to some.

A dance instructor tells the main character to maintain her weight and to only eat brown rice and vegetables. Later when the main character asks for a cheeseburger and fries the dance instructor orders her brown rice and vegetables instead.

OTT misogynists spouting outrageously sexist one-liners are all part of Nomi's welcome to showbiz. It can be seen as satiric, but also as callously triggering.

Yes all along the film women are objectified, it peaks at times with huge power & psychological pressure (always on women and often triggering) and also the rape scene where the woman is completely objectified by the agressors.

Technically the main character is at the beginning and end of the film but it is not seen as important and she finds a home right away.
