Jordan - AKA Katie Price - is best known for posing in lingerie and lifestyle magazines. But she also ran for Parliament in 2001 on a platform promising free breast implants under the slogan "For a Bigger and Betta Future."

The Independent's sex and dating columnist Catherine Townsend argues that feminism is about choice and those choices can not be dictated. She cites Jordan's powerful assertions -- in her surgeries, her appearance, and her finances -- as exemplary of a woman's right to choose.
Life coach, columnist, and television personality Jenni Trent Hughes argues that Jordan is opposed as a feminist icon because she publicly enjoys sex. Hughes knows that Jordan's feminist identity should not be impacted by the fact that she "likes sex and is good at it."
Hughes locates Jordan in a tradition of openly sexual feminists from Mae West to Mary Wollstonecraft; she concludes with a limerick devoted to Jordan's prowess as both a sexual woman and a feminist.
