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.

Review: Living Dolls: The Return of Sexism

User Review  - Pernille - Goodreads

I can't say I enjoyed this book, because it is a dire read. It is thought-provoking and so important, and highlights the fact that sexism remains a pressing issue in modern society. I think the world would be a better place if everyone read this. Read full review
