Body Outlaws: Rewriting the Rules of Beauty and Body Image

Body Outlaws: Rewriting the Rules of Beauty and Body Image Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Pick up a magazine, turn on the TV, and you'll find few women who haven't been fried, dyed, plucked, or tucked. In short, you'll see no body outlaws.

The writers in this groundbreaking anthology reveal a world where bodies come in all their many-splendored shapes, sizes, colors, and textures. In doing so, they expand the national dialogue on body image to include race, ethnicity, sexuality, and power—issues that, while often overlooked, are intimately linked to how women feel about their bodies. Body Outlaws offers stories by those who have chosen to ignore, subvert, or redefine the dominant beauty standard in order to feel at home in their bodies.

Synopsis:

This collection of essays gives a voice to women who consciously repudiate the dominant beauty standard in favor of feeling at home in their bodies. This new edition features a revised Introduction by the author and a Foreword by Rebecca Walker.
