Are women under increasing pressure to look a certain way? We hear your views on a Woman's Hour phone-in. Do you spend time and money on your appearance because you enjoy it? Do you feel happy with the way you are, or need to conform to certain standards of beauty and attractiveness? Where do those ideals come from and how much pressure do they put you under? What lengths have you gone to maintain your appearance? Presented by Jenni Murray.
