beauty is difficult. it is a resource and a feeling, an unavoidable lure that does different kinds of work: it stabilizes and enables hierarchies to fall into place but also reminds us of the intermittent temporalities where beauty resides.

The question [of beauty] for feminist politics is not so much moral — is beauty good or bad for women? — but pragmatic: how is beauty defined, deployed, defended, subordinated, marketed or manipulated, and how do these tactics intersect with gender and value?
