Description SinceThe Politics of Women's Bodies: Sexuality, Appearance, and Behavior has served as the premiere text in the area of women and the body. This revised and updated fourth edition brings together recent (and a few classic) critical writings in this important field. Written by leading scholars, this collection of original articles examines women as offenders, professionals, and victims.

This is evident in the ways women negotiate the restrictive symbolism and frameworks that police notions of virginity, “real” womanhood, marriage, lobola (bride price), contraception and termination of pregnancy.
