Vintage Feminism: classic feminist texts in short form
WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY THE AUTHOR
Every day, women around the world are confronted with a dilemma – how to look. In a society embroiled in a cult of female beauty and youthfulness, pressure on women to conform physically is constant and all-pervading. In this shortened edition you will find the essence of Wolf’s groundbreaking book. It is a radical, gripping and frank exposé of the tyranny of the beauty myth, its oppressive function and the destructive obsession it engenders.
Powerful... No other work has...so honestly depicted the confusion of accomplished women who feel emotionally and physically tortured by the need to look like movie stars
A brilliant, bracing book...The world has changed - a bit - over the past decade and a half, but not enough: this remains essential reading
