“Beauty, Women’s Bodies and the Law: Performances in Plastic” by Dr. Jocelynne A. Scutt

25 January 2021

Our Senior Fellow, the Hon. Dr Jocelynne Scutt, has just had her new book published, “Beauty, Women’s Bodies and the Law: Performances in Plastic”.

Taking a legal perspective on the vast range of ‘beauty’ interventions available to women, Dr Scutt discusses women’s perceptions of body and beauty, pressures on women to conform to ‘idealised’ notions of the perfect woman’s body, and outcomes of legal actions including those taken by individual women who are unhappy with results, as well as those launched against companies trading in products advertised as safe and for women’s benefit.
