Quote
Advertisers must convince young women that they are in need of constant improvement without threatening young women鈥檚 views of themselves as intelligent, self-directed, and equal. Buzz words like 鈥渆mpowerment,鈥 鈥渟elf-determination,鈥 and 鈥渋ndependence鈥 are sprinkled liberally across their pages. But this seemingly progressive rhetoric is used to sell products and ideas that keep girls doing gender in appropriately feminine ways, leading them to reproduce, rather than challenge, gender hierarchies. An ad for a depilatory cream, for instance, tells girls that they are 鈥渦nique, determined, and unstoppable,鈥 so they should not 鈥渟ettle鈥 for sandpaper skin.鈥 Feminist demands for political and economic equality鈥攁nd the refusal to settle for low-wages, violence, and second-class citizenship鈥攎orph into a refusal to settle for less than silky skin. Pseudo-feminist language allows young women to believe that they can 鈥渆mpower鈥 themselves at the checkout counter by buying the accoutrements of traditional femininity.
Amanda M. Gengler, 鈥楽elling Feminism, Consuming Femininity鈥
