Angles, 1987

“unapologetic beauty: 1) the ever-changing and imperfect condition of pleasure in oneself that is not bound by age, economic or educational status, clothing size, racial characteristics, bodily proportions, or societal enforcements of a two-gender system; 2) liberation from the perversity of stubborn beauty standards; 3) an art of self-creation that occurs over a lifetime; 4) dynamic integration of a real and imagined self, what someone is born with and what she organically and artistically makes of it; 5) unquantifiable originality; 6) the projection of character; 7) the sovereign choice of each girl and woman; 8) global appreciation for female variety galore “
