Suggested Reading: ‘The Makeup Tax’

My latest Suggested Reading is The Makeup Tax, by Olga Khazan of The Atlantic.

Did you know that women who wear makeup tend to earn more and are treated better? Once you understand just how much time, effort, and money women put into their appearance, you realize that it’s a fact that affects women’s lives on a much larger scale than often discussed.

The politics of femininity are complicated, and Khazan’s article brings many of the logical implications of the “necessity of beauty” to light. Whether you are a man or woman, wear makeup or not, it’s an article worth reading for all.
