dieting vs femnism

a very interesting article
its very strange how we instantnously equate attractive,well groomed women with frivolity and yet we don't with men . how the desire to be healthy and attractive is always deemed as an attempt to pander to men.I think societies as a whole tend to compartmentalize women if your one thing you cant possibly the other. its either bimbo or bluestocking which is ludicrous because real women are a lot more complicated than that .
.hmmm this makes me think of the women i see at the nutrtionist, the majority of which are veiled (though they are a various ages) I wonder why they diet ?
