In the follow-up to the perennially classic study Witches, Midwives and Nurses (Feminist Press, 2010 - also available from Turnaround), Barbara Ehrenreich and Dierdre English explore the evolution of the medical view of the female sex and how it has been used to reinforce the social view of women. Beginning in the late 19th century, women's inferiority was 'proven' through medical science. Today, the medical establishment still serves to give 'scientific justifications' for the sexist values of society.

The bestselling classic that redefined our view od the relationship between beauty and female identity. In today's world, women have more power, legal recognition, and professional success than ever before. Alongside the evident progress of the women's movement, however, writer and journalist Naomi Wolf is troubled by a different kind of social control, which, she argues, may prove just as restrictive as the traditional image of homemaker and wife. It's the beauty myth, an obsession with physical perfection that traps the modern woman in an endless spiral of hope, self-consciousness, and self-hatred as she tries to fulfill society's impossible definition of "the flawless beauty."
