Feminism

Hello, I'm doing a project on feminism and on the woman's image. Do you have any information on this subject?

Your project topic is a bit broad, so I'm afraid that I can't offer any specific information. For the general topic of "feminism" I suggest that you look at the Feminism section here at Ask Amy for more specific--and general--information. As for the latter question about woman's image, I'm not sure if you mean in the public eye or the personal--representation or reality. Regardless, I suggest that you check out Naomi Wolf's book The Beauty Myth, which looks at how the media holds women up to unrealistic standards of beauty, and Joan Brumberg's book The Body Project, which looks at how girls look at themselves. I hope these sources are helpful--and good luck.
