Beauty Myth



Have started reading a really good book, The Beauty Myth by Naomi Wolfe. All about how the quest for beauty is just another political tool for keeping woman repressed and controlled. Now we have equal rights in politics and the workplace, we earn more, have more power and more choice, do women feel better? No they don't... this new form of control has taken over to make women feel badly about themselves. Very thought provoking. Still didn't stop me spending an hour on the treadmill though...
