Summary: Explores the phenomenon of the violent backlashagainst feminism that uses images of female beautyas a political weapon against women's advancement. "The Beauty Myth is a smart, angry,insightful book, and a clarion call to freedom. Every woman should read it." -- Gloria Steinem. In this controversial national bestseller, feminist scholar Naomi Wolf argues that there is one hurdle in the struggle for equality that women have yet to clear--the myth
of female beauty. She exposes today's unrealistic standards of female beauty as a destructive form of social control and a reaction against women's increasing status in business and politics. The author "contends that society's emphasis on a woman's appearance makes women weaker than men socially, politically, and economically."(Christ Sci Monit)
