Beyond the Frame explores the importance of visual images in the identities and material conditions of women of color as they relate to social power, oppression, and resistance. The goal of the collection is to rethink the category of visual theory through women of color. It also explores the political and social ramifications of visual imagery for women of color, and the political consciousness that can emerge alongside a critical understanding of the impact of visual imagery. The book begins with a general exploration of what it means to develop a women of color criticism (rather than an analysis of women of color), and goes on to look specifically at topics such as 90s fashion advertisements, the politics of cosmetic surgery, and female fans of East LA rock bands.

But complainants had to assert their claims very narrowly. For example, under section 1982, they

And he began to appear as a ghostly figure. Conjuring up Traces of

politics behind the reification and marketing of the standardization of Western beauty ideals. As feminist critic Pippa Brush writes, “ ‘new’ and ‘different’ body images are being presented to women as just so many available commodities through advertising by the industries with a stake in the beauty business” (“Metaphors of Inscription: Discipline, Plasticity and the Rhetoric of Choice” 40). Adding to Brush’s observations, Susan Bordo in her essay, “ ‘Material Girl’: The Effacements of

expected to play in movement. While la Soldadera was seen as loyal camp follower or as a woman who “stands by her man” to provide comfort to the revolutionary hero, it also circulated with the figure of la Adelita that conjured up an image of the revolutionary sweetheart.
