Wolf clearly takes her cue from Betty Friedan but Friedan's argument was devastating fully exposing the manifestations of a myth in our culture Meanwhile Naomi Wolf writes a hopelessly sloppy and superficial analysis that falls into one of the great pits of the literature of social change assumption of conspiracy andor a myth functioning as a conscious organism

Review ´ The Beauty Myth How Images of Beauty Are Used Against Women ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB The bestselling classic that redefined our view of the relationship between beauty and female identity In today's world women have power legal recognition and professional success than ever before Alongside the evident pro. I highly recommend it to everyone not just women I think is is really important for men to read books like this too It is all about how the A Our modern ideals of beauty are mostly driven by the advertising industry and not intrinsic cultural or biological preferences and B How our modern ideals of beauty put women at a disadvantage to men I have a few disagreements with her listed below but I agree with her in general and it s a really good book to read even if you are not going to agree with her just to make yourself think about some of the uestions she raisesConcerns1 Data she plays fast and loose with her statistics sometimes I have no doubt that data in the form in which I wish she had presented it ie percentages instead of absolute figures or comparable figures across timegeography would still back her up but her argument is less compelling with the current hodgepodge of data2 Biological perspective I understand that s not what this is about but as a bio anthro major I just can t let it go entirely There are some attributes of modern American beauty like extreme thinness that are not found in too many other cultures and those probably ARE driven by the ad agencies and other cultural institutions as Wolf argues But there are other attributes such as a low waist to hip ratio having a skinny waist relative to your hips regardless of the absolute size of your waist that are near universal I think the biological theory that this desire is driven by signals that a woman is fertile explain this universality a lot better than Wolf s theories of stakeholders of power that perpetuate cultual ideas useful to themselves Which brings me to3 Who are these cultural oppressors Wolf never really makes clear who The Man my term not hers that is perpetuating all these ideas Yes she does specify that the ad agencies are part of The Man and that the average guy is not But there does seem to be an unwritten undercurrent of an idea that there are power stakeholders out there conspiring to keep women down I favor explanations that A don t reuire one to believe in concerted actions by groups ie conspiracies and B assume that all actors are acting in their own self interest This is why I believe her about the ad agencies They get if they sell weight loss products and cosmetics so of course they want women to think they are fat and ugly But who else besides the ad agencies are responsible for all this

Review ´ The Beauty Myth How Images of Beauty Are Used Against Women ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB E beauty myth an obsession with physical perfection that traps the modern woman in an endless spiral of hope self consciousness and self hatred as she tries to fulfill society's impossible definition of the flawless beauty. By the time I had read twenty pages of The Beauty Myth I realized that this is one of the most important books I will ever read Admittedly I was initially skeptical of Wolf s central thesis that the cultural myth of feminine beauty is a political and economic weapon used by the male dominated world to undermine women s advancement in society but by the time I had finished reading the first chapter I had a changed perspective of the world This is a book in my opinion that should be reuired reading It is a book about the very atmosphere women negotiate daily and from an early age one in which we intuit the importance of our looks and are apprehensive about our beauty as an indication of our status competence wealth power and credibility one in which we are manipulated by powerful corporate advertisers to feel insecure so we will remain the largest underpaid labor pool and simultaneously the largest consumers of unnecessary products in the world Without this dichotomy created by the beauty myth the world s economy would collapse

I ve had this book on my shelf for a rather long time and if I m honest I was a little anxious about reading it I realise how dated it is but also I knew it wasn t going to make for light reading I was right on both accounts but uite a lot of it I was in total agreement withFor instance it is well known that in some workplaces women are judged on their appearance rather than their personal skills And yes this still happens even so than people think We as women are judged on our clothing choices and we are objected to these snidey comments such as not looking feminine enough or looking too tarty or even worse we are apparently asking for it I hear this kind of shit like this regularly and it makes me angry I found that some of the statistics included in here are not reliable For instance in regards to women and eating disorders Wolf made out that near enough every woman is an anorexic which is obviously painfully incorrect Wolf discusses cosmetic surgery and how it is on the rise that and women feel the need to turn to surgery to correct their bodies I find Wolf makes some interesting and valid points but I also realised she does this in an odd way I almost feel like she wanted to frighten the reader as nearly everything she said was dramatically exaggerated when in reality she could have been discussing possible solutions to these issues You know some sit and blame men entirely for how women feel the need to buy make up or get their hair done every month or be fashioned in the latest gear but actually it s down to the marketing and that I cannot see changing anytime soon What I would like to see changed is the women that are used in advertising fashion What is wrong with a woman that is over a size 14 that has a couple of stretch marks on her body with a stomach that doesn t resemble a washboard I want to see of these women This book had some good parts but it also had things in it that made me roll my eyes It was heavy going and I didn t agree with everything but I m glad I finally got to it
