The bestselling classic that redefined our view of the relationship between beauty and female identity. In today's world, women have more power, legal recognition, and professional success than ever before. Alongside the evident progress of the women's movement, however, writer and journalist Naomi Wolf is troubled by a different kind of social control, which, she argues, may prove just as restrictive as the traditional image of homemaker and wife.

I really wanted to like this book but I feel like the author is reading too much into things. I really don’t think that all men are out to get us or that they want women to not work. Perhaps some do?
