In fresh and incisive essays, twenty-eight young women expand the national dialogue about body image to include race, ethnicity, sexuality and power issues that, while often overlooked, are intimately linked to how women feel about their bodies. Adios, Barbie collects stories filled with honesty and humor by women who have chosen to ignore, subvert or redefine the dominant beauty standard in order to feel at home in their bodies.
