The Beauty Myth. How images of women are used against women.

Pb, in-8, 348 pp., bibl. notes, bibliography.

Quote from Germaine Greer: The fear of freedom is strong within us. And this one: 'The specter of the future is not that women will be slaves, but that we will be robots.' (267) Note LT: Perhaps one of the essentials in this book is that the manipulative action of media is bigger when the recipients are brought in a condition of unawareness. People absorb the stimuli rather than picking them up. And thus the picture of the ideal woman installs itself in our brains, suggesting that we created it by ourselves.
