Thursday October 5th, 2023 with WINGS series producer, Frieda Werden
Jobs for the Girls - What do you see when. you look in the mirror?

This audio documentary produced in Australia by Norie Neumark features women who don't fit the anglo stereotype of blond, Barbie-like beauty, discussing the pressure to change from their own culture of origin's appearance norms. The jobs on offer include nose jobs and boob jobs - but also the jobs that are easier to get if you look and sound like the dominant race. Produced in 1991 and previously featured on New American Radio, Jobs for the Girls was updated by the producer in 2023 for WINGS. Neumark produces audio and installations with Maria Miranda, under the name Out-of-Sync. She also teaches, and is the author of Voicetracks: Attuning to Voice in Media and the Arts (MIT Press). The WINGS series producer is Frieda Werden. Topics : Society and Culture, Radio Arts, Surgeons, Feminism, Australia, Ethnicity, Indigenous, Racism, Barbie, Mothers
