Having just finished reading Natasha Walter's new book, 'Living Dolls: The Return of Sexism', I would be really interested to hear other people's thoughts on the book or general opinions on the relevance of feminism in today's society.
I personally think that books like this need to be given much more publicity and are essential reading for young men and women.
I completely agree with you, Kelly. The very fact that this book reports on the continuing and increasing trend to objectify women from an increasingly early age shows there is a need for feminism.
The problem is there are so many people - both men and women- who seem to think you can only be successful as a woman in any walk of life if you are: - young, pretty, thin,wear makeup all the time, remove all your body hair,think pole dancing is liberating. If you're none of those things you're irrelevant. If you complain about the topics raised by Natasha Walter then you are just a jealous and unattractive feminist who can't stand women who are prettier than you getting a topless modelling contract.
