Our Shared Shelf: Win a copy of The Beauty Myth


Our Shared Shelf is excited to announce that we have 25 copies of The Beauty Myth by Naomi Wolf to give away! This is Emma’s choice for July/August and the copies on offer are the Vintage Feminism Short Editions, with thanks to Vintage Classics.

About the book:

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. It’s the 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.”
