Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Beauty Myth, subtitled How Images of Beauty Are Used Against Women, and published in 1991 by Bantham Doubleday Dell Publishing, is a nonfiction book by Naomi Wolf. It was republished in 2002 with a new introduction by Wolf. The basic premise of The Beauty Myth is that forced adherence to standards of physical beauty has grown stronger for women as they gained power in other societal arenas. In the book, Wolf argued that beauty as a normative value is entirely socially constructed, and that the patriarchy determines the content of that construction with the goal of reproducing its own hegemony. Wolf also posited the idea of an iron-maiden, an intrinsically unattainable standard of beauty that is then used to punish women physically and psychologically for their failure to achieve and conform to it.

Der Weiblichkeitswahn Oder Die Selbstbefreiung Der Frau

Der Titel dieses heftig umstrittenen Bestsellers ist in die Umgangssprache eingegangen. Weiblichkeitswahn – das ist die von mächtigen wirtschaftlichen Interessengruppen manipulierte Umkehrung der Frauenemanzipation. Die Frau wird durch psychologische Dauerbeeinflussung in der Werbung und in den Massenmedien zur «glücklichen Hausfrau und Mutter» umfunktioniert, wird als kaufkräftige Konsumentin umschmeichelt und auf ein Sexualsymbol mit Warencharakter reduziert. Betty Friedan führt ein erdrückendes Beweismaterial ins Feld gegen das entstellte Image des weiblichen Wesens in unserer Zivilisation. Die Autorin zeigt allerdings auch Wege, auf denen die moderne Frau trotz aller Widerstände ihren eigenen Glücksansprüchen und denen der Familie gerecht werden kann. Dieses Werk einer intelligenten und temperamentvollen Frau über die Frau sollte auch Pflichtlektüre für Männer sein.

Beyond a Shadow of a Diet is the most comprehensive book available for professionals working with clients who struggle with Binge Eating Disorder, Compulsive Eating or Emotional Overeating. The authors present research revealing that food restrictions in the pursuit of weight loss actually trigger and sustain overeating. Next, they offer step-by-step guidelines to help clients end the diet mentality and learn an internally-based approach known as attuned eating. Divided into three sections–The Problem, The Treatment and The Solution–this engaging book contains chapters filled with compelling case examples, visualizations and other exercises so that therapists can deepen their knowledge and skills as they help clients gain freedom from preoccupation with food and weight. In addition to addressing the symptoms, dynamics and treatment of eating problems, Beyond a Shadow of a Diet presents a holistic framework that goes well beyond the clinical setting. This invaluable resource includes topics such as the clinician’s own attitudes toward dieting and weight; cultural, ethical and social justice issues; the neuroscience of mindfulness; weight stigma; and promoting wellness for children of all sizes. Drawing from the Health At Every Size paradigm–and the wealth of research examining the relationship between dieting, weight and health–Beyond a Shadow of a Diet offers both therapists and their clients a positive, evidence-based model to making peace with food, their bodies and themselves.
