In this episode of Sex Plus, Laci Green explores makeup as a feminist issue. She begins with a brief history of makeup and argues that makeup itself is not problematic, but the social context surrounding it can be. Laci goes on to highlight 5 social situations involving makeup that she believes are harmful. In the last section, she argues that people wear makeup for a variety of reasons, none of which are universal. Even if it’s usage is not entirely self-directed or consistently feminist, makeup is one of the ways that women are forced to navigate society. She closes by suggesting that condemning women for that creates more problems then it solves and that women should be free to adorn their bodies as they wish.
