Abstract: The several theories and activities of feminist opposition to the notions of fashion and expected beauty of women, which have not been very effective, are discussed. It is suggested that feminists should tackle the issue of the enduring politics of appearance by shifting their focus from the appearance to a broader concept that includes behaviour and context.
