Description: The Politics of Women's Bodies, Fourth Edition, is an anthology covering the issues surrounding women's bodies. Threads running throughout the book include the distribution of power between men and women, how that affects cultural standards, and how those standards subsequently serve as powerful and political tools for controlling women's appearance, sexuality, and behavior. This book fills an important niche not covered by other books: focus on women's bodies, social control, and agency.The new edition includes updated readings which engage diversity and highlight cross-cultural relevance where appropriate.
