I'll second Greg .
I'll repeat - if your goals are more appearance based, then try t-nation. They have a woman's section. They do a lot of stuff that's about weights and appearance, and even a little performance, and lots in between. But they're self declared all about "looking good nekkid."
"Society wants this..." insercurity, bitchiness, what some book says we're being told, the sophomoric obsessions of appearance self-obession... evidence for the need for squat therapy.
Go find a barbell, get under it, and lift it. Then make it heavier. The barbell doesn't care about any of that bullshit you might be thinking about, about what you think society makes you think, about how you can be empowered or subvert the dominant paradigm, or any other bullshit notion.
One bar, one person. Lift.

With bodyweight, ring dips and L-sit pullups work the entire upper body and core like no other. Front levers are also good. For full body conditioning, do burpees for 5 minutes.

With weight, clean and press covers every base.
