    Description

    One of the most significant books of the century, reissued with a contemporary new look

    In the struggle for women's equality, there is one subject still shrouded in 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.

    A sensible read

    Quite an eye-opener. A new way to look at things, some hyped up fears and talk that is a straight cut...hitting the very core of the topic...a good read. I personally would recommend this book to women all over the world for the insight and thinking that it provides. This is the first book that i had read of N.Wolf's. Looking forward to read some more.

    Incorrect statistis

    Wolf uses exponentially screwed up statistics to shock the audience, which is hilarious, because if you read this book you are bound to feel that anorexia is the major cause of female deaths throughout the world, not childbirth, not breast cancer, not domestic violence, not HIV, nothing, just anorexia.

    "lack or loss of appetite for food (as a medical condition).
    an emotional disorder characterized by an obsessive desire to lose weight by refusing to eat." I feel the book would have ...
