Manufacturer's product description
In the struggle for women's equality there is one subject still shrouded in uneasy silence - women's compulsive pursuit of beauty. The myth of female beauty challenges every woman every day of her life. The author exposes the tyranny of the beauty myth through the ages and its oppressive function today in the home and at work in literature and the media in relationships between men and women between women and women. With examples she confronts the beauty industry and its advertising and uncovers the reasons why women are consumed by this destructive obsession.
