Wuhan University
Journal of China Women’s University 2016-3

Abstract:While women have freed themselves to a large extent from the oppression of traditional religion and feudal ethics, the fanatical pursuit of beauty is causing certain damage. To meet the standards set by male desire, and set against the logic of capital proliferation, women have become the subject of commercial proliferation. This reflects the problems of emancipation, born from a misunderstanding of beauty. It’s urgent to guide women to find themselves,escape the body consumption and realize real emancipation.
