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:

- 25,000 copies sold to date- Includes several new essays outlining the latest trends in the beauty industry such as botox, plastic surgery, and exercise bulimia. Also included is a fascinating analysis of how men are affected by these same rigors, a thorough resource section, and a curriculum guide

Synopsis:

A new edition of the cult classic (formerly Adios, Barbie). BODY OUTLAWS is an anthology of essays on women and the myriad issues surrounding body image and identity.
