introduction. If God had to give a woman wrinkles, he might at least have put them on the soles of her feet.

Nike women's fitness. The campaign combined feminist poetic prose with powerful images of women, including the iconic Marilyn Monroe, performing sports, smiling at the beach or simply standing and looking at the camera. There was a particular version of this advert that always struck me. It was a two page spread and on the left there was a faded photograph of a woman and her daughter seated unsmiling on a sofa and on the right there was a full page with a white background and bold text which declared you do not have to become your mother unless she is who you want to be. My mother, whom I recall most strongly sitting at her old fashioned dressing table, an army of lotions and potions before her. My mother, who had proselytized on the latest creams available over pots of tea to a rotation of women who frequented our kitchen and who were all known as Auntie, even though there was no blood relation whatsoever. My mother, who in my teenage years had kindly and discreetly informed me that my T zone was looking dry and offered to buy me my first moisturizer and offer, which I somewhat bluntly rejected our relationship, although usually harmonious, was occasionally rocked by our inherent differences. I saw her obsession with appearance as an outdated reflection of the time she grew up in, when a woman's value was much more overtly based on her objectification.
