21. I don't think this writer is anti-feminist.

She's pointing out that the societal demand put on women to look a certain way is another form of oppression of women.

Certainly there are many women who feel free to step outside the prescribed "look." It gets easier and easier to ignore all this as you get older.

But a LOT of young women feel these pressures acutely. It results in their spending a tremendous amount of time focused on their looks, often with great anxiety. And it can definitely skew their sense of who they are.
