Beyond the Beauty Myth

By February 27, 2009 No Comments

Naomi Wolf writes in the final pages of her book The Beauty Myth:

The terrible truth is that though the marketplace promotes the myth, it would be powerless if women didn’t enforce it against one another. For any one woman to outgrow the myth, she needs the support of many women. The toughest but most necessary change will come not from men or from the media, but from women, in the way we see and behave toward other women.
