The power of beauty
From the diaphragm to the WonderBra, the author of such classic books as My Secret Garden and My Mother/My Self traces the past 25 years of changes in women's attitudes about self-esteem, appearance, and sexuality. Taking readers from the Patriarchal Fifties to the Empty Package Nineties, Friday discuses a wide range of topics, exploring the possibility of a future free from the twin obsessions of the power of beauty and the beauty of power.
