Are beauty norms becoming increasingly global?

In anticipation of our third workshop on 'the globalisation of beauty', we asked our speakers and participants to consider whether conceptions of beauty are indeed becoming more global. If you would like to contribute on this topic and write a post for us please email Ruth Wareham. We welcome contributions from different disciplines and perspectives.

Question for Consideration: Is it still the case that there are significant cultural differences in dominant beauty norms and ideals or are beauty norms becoming increasingly homogenised and global? If so what are the drivers of this? Is it a westernised norm? Are there key ethical, legal or practices issues which arise in this context?
