The Beauty Myth (Vintage Feminism Short Edition)
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 expose of the tyranny of the beauty myth, its oppressive function and the destructive obsession it engenders.
