The Beauty Myth - Feminist Texts Discovered
The Beauty Myth
Hello all!

I have a question for those of you who have read "The Beauty Myth" by Naomi Wolf.

First off, I have not read it, but I consider myself a pretty avid reader & collector of feminist books. I am therefore familiar with the main idea of the book, or at least as far as I know, as being the role of the media in manipulating women's self-image through unhealthy, unrealistic, and sometimes downright impossible beauty standards.

So, knowing the basic message already, and the book being nearly 20 years old now, my question to you is this: Should I still read it? Why or why not?

Xposted, and thanks!
