How do we understand 'glamour'? Has it empowered women or turned them into objects? Glamour: Women, History, Feminism explores the changing meanings of the word glamour, its relationship to femininity and fashion, and its place in twentieth-century social history. Using a rich variety of sources – from women's magazines and film, to social surveys and life histories – Carol Dyhouse examines with wit and insight the history and meaning of costume, cosmetics, perfume and fur. Dyhouse disentangles some of the arguments surrounding appearance and power, directly addressing feminist concerns.
