I’m a feminist & I’m thinking about getting Botox

Welcome to Glow On, a new beauty column by Louise McSharry. Each month she’ll examine the beauty topics we’re all wondering about and feature some favoured products

I’ve been thinking about getting Botox. The lines in my forehead are getting to me. I’m not sure when it happened, but at some point, they crossed over from being absolutely grand, to intensely irritating. I see them in every photo of myself these days, and while the fine lines around my eyes and increasingly crepey quality to my eyelids aren’t bothering me, I’d love to make the forehead crevices disappear.

“Obviously I wasn't oblivious to the fact that the pressure on women to look a certain way is a symptom of the patriarchy, but I suppose I was happy not thinking about it in the context of this urge. Now that someone had asked me, I had to actually consider my position.”
