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.

“Living Dolls”

Natasha Walters is staunchly a 3rd Wave feminist. She picks up where Germaine Greer and Susie Orbach left off but she also actively readdresses where we are now in 2012. She is refreshingly in touch with modern women... More
