"Your face is your fortune" is traditional career advice given to girls.
"Your Face is Your Fortune:
These days women can be successful in the workplace, but they're never allowed to forget
what really matters: how sexually attractive they are to men. ..."
--Marianne Cupit (1 February 2007)
"It is a depressing fact. Despite all her other achievements, a woman is still expected to be a beauty. ...
The relationship between looks and power has never been more stark. Some employers
chose women as office decoration rather than to be professional equals. The only two
professions where women consistently earn more than their male counterparts are modeling
and prostitution. That tells women everything they need to know about the qualities they are valued for."
I have heard the crude saying, "Every woman's sitting on her fortune."
"Female preoccupation with appearance and body insecurity are not merely personal problems;
they are *political symptoms* of an economic culture that requires a pool of underpaid female labour
to sustain the world economies and to complete work men would not be prepared to."
