Description

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.

Publisher Review

Essential reading * Fay Weldon * A brilliant, bracing book...The world has changed - a bit - over the past decade and a half, but not enough: this remains essential reading * Guardian * The most important feminist publication since The Female Eunuch -- Germaine Greer 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 * New York Times * A smart, angry, insightful book, and a clarion call to freedom. Every woman should read it -- Gloria Steinem
