Looking Back on Beauty

Through the process of writing this blog and reading what my group members wrote about, I was exposed to many new perspectives on beauty culture. Some of us focused on how beauty is perceived and performed in American culture while others investigated beauty standards across the world.  Overall, I think the group consensus turned out to be that beauty has the potential to be a positive aspect of women’s lives despite its repressive historical uses. As a group  I think we propose not to do away with beauty culture but rather to integrate feminist principles into our ideas surrounding beauty.
