This project provides a feminist reading of Naomi Wolf's The Beauty Myth. In this book she talks about deconstructing the myth of beauty and realising how patriarchy stresses our appearances in order to damage us all. Figures, data, citations, and statements abound in this book, which is divided into six topics: labour, culture, religion, sex, hunger, and violence. In each part, Wolf tries to demonstrate how the concept of "beauty" has historically and continues to keep women in inferior positions
