From the Paper:

"According to Wolf, a relationship exists between female liberation and female beauty. Wolf's research contends that a cultural backlash against feminism utilizes images of female beauty to keep women "in their place". As women have broken through legal and material hindrances, images of female beauty have simultaneously increased. While women began to breach the power structure, Wolf notes, eating disorders increased, demand for cosmetic surgery spiraled upwards, pornography became spotlighted in the media, and women's focus on losing weight became an obsession to some."
