One more body part

by Judy Koven

I enjoyed reading a breezy but to-the-point piece in The New York Times Opinion section, 2/15/15,Great! Another Thing to Hate About Ourselves.

Just when we women thought we knew all the things that we could “fix” about our bodies, this essay clues us in to the latest “… body part for women to prune and police.”

For anyone who’s struggled with how she feels about her body, this essay speaks to the nearly constant pressure in our culture to attain unrealistic, even questionable beauty norms, and it does it in a humorous way, reminding us of the ridiculousness of it all.
