This article is fascinating to me for a couple of reasons.
1. The writer starts asking questions throughout the first half without ever coming to good answers, then near the end subsides to an attempt (that never really convinces her, it seems) at hope for the future along the same lines. After all, it can't be possible that the assumptions guiding us from those dark days a few decades ago might just be wrong...can it?
2. 'This may, of course, be a matter of confidence. In a recent survey across 10 countries, British women proved to have the least faith in themselves - or more precisely in the way they look. Only one in five said they saw themselves as attractive, while only one in 50 described themselves as "sexy" '. This deserves some exploration in itself.
