about

This volume takes a critical discourse approach to the ways in which texts from women's magazines contribute to the social construction of particular kinds of female body - as ideal, beautiful, ugly, overweight or engineered. By looking at a wide range of texts and studying the language used to describe female forms, Lesley Jeffries provides an insight into the experience of the female reader of such texts, and the likely impact upon her own self-image.
