Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters

How The Quest For Perfection Is Harming Young Women

Book - 2008
Rate this:
This eye-opening look at twenty-first century culture and its impact on women reveals how food and weight obsession, driven in no small part by images of celebrities openly wasting away, threatens a new generation of girls as the feminist exhortation that ?you can do anything? is twisted into ?you must do everything.' It also inspires readers to consider what wonderful things might happen if the madness stopped once and for all.
