'I once believed that we only had to put in place the conditions
for equality for the remnants of old-fashioned sexism in our
culture to wither away. I am ready to admit that I was wrong.'
Empowerment, liberation, choice. Once the watchwords of feminism,
these terms have now been co-opted by a society that sells women an
airbrushed, highly sexualised and increasingly narrow vision of
femininity. Drawing on a wealth of research and personal
interviews, LIVING DOLLS is a straight-talking, passionate and
important book that makes us look afresh at women and girls, at
sexism and femininity - today.
