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.

Naomi Wolf 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 pertinent and intelligent examples, she confronts the beauty industry and its advertising and uncovers the reasons why women are consumed by this destructive obsession.

Review:

"A smart, angry, insightful book, and a clarion call to freedom. Every woman should read it." (Gloria Steinem)

"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)

"The most important feminist publication since The Female Eunuch" (Germaine Greer)

"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)

"Essential reading" (Fay Weldon)

Book Description:

Provocative, punchy and important, this is one of the essential classics of modern feminist literature.
