Thesander, Marianne
ISBN: 1861890044
Reaktion Books London 1997 First Edition
 Hardcover With illustrations, A fine copy in fine dustjacket. In "The Feminine Ideal", Marianne Thesander examines the significance of the female body, beauty and culture. She shows how the female body is constantly being changed, and by various sometimes punishing means made to fit in with current feminine physical ideals. The use of corsets, bras, make-up, cosmetics and body decoration either emphasizes or plays down specific aspects of the female form. Marianne Thesander considers: sin and virtue; the forbidden, the concealed, the alluring body; and, woman as object, fetish and erotic sign. With extensive use of illustrative material, she examines the fashion history of underwear from the eighteenth century to the present day, exploring the significance of changing 'models' of the feminine. ; 240 x 155mm; 228 pages Fine in Fine dust jacket

The F Word: How We Learned to Swear by Feminism
Caro, Jane and Catherine Fox
ISBN: 9780868408231
New South Books 2008  2008 
  8vo softcover 250pp near fine. Index. When it comes to the work/life balance, modern women continually find themselves in a no-win situation where they are criticised regardless of the path they choose. The F Word: How we learned to swear by feminism argues that the pervasive idea that women will never be able to effectively combine work or interests outside the home with marriage, a social life and parenting is a furphy. In their lively and topical new book, Caro and Fox combine both personal experience and the stories of a range of women with the big picture, and provide practical suggestions for forgiving ourselves, having fun and not giving up while holding it all together.
