FEM is about coming of age in the Spice Girls Era, the nineties and early aughts. I knew fashion and beauty as fun and girly and therefore good. Bad things would happen, sure. But you could always dress it up. Just play it cool and keep it cute. No wonder I went to hair school and wear high heels a lot. It’s tact as a response to any even attempts at disempowerment–bad relationships or jail visits or other offhanded situations. This book also muses on piercings and stockings and bralessness. It looks at femininity to understand life.
