A bit of French listening: les canons de la beauté

In this section of the interview from the Doll Museum, Samy Odin reminds us that Barbie would not have been considered beautiful back in the late 19th century. I guess that if Barbie had been a real person and had lived back then, people would have wondered if the tall, thin lady was getting enough to eat!

Listening suggestion: Listen to this 8 to 10 times, then test yourself: can you follow the recording without looking at the text?
