    Amazing read that links all the contributions of women in the fashion and beauty industries with decade by decade explanations of how those contributions affected, inspired, and irritated feminism - and vice versa. "Wow! Linda Scott has written a fresh, provocative and fun look at feminism and fashion. For too long leading feminists have told women that everything from high heels to lipstick is oppressive. Linda Scott shows us how the most oppressive voice is the feminists themselves. With exemplary research she documents the puritanical and classist motives of the women's movement in their judgments of fashion, and arrives at the conclusion women have been waiting for: you can be feminine and a feminist."--Rene Denfeld, journalist and author of The New Victorians: A Young Woman's Challenge to the Old Feminist Order
