Naomi Wolf, bestselling author, public intellectual, and social activist doesn’t just comment on our world’s most pervasive problems, she aims to solve them. Wolf’s landmark international bestseller The Beauty Myth challenged the cosmetics industry and the marketing of unrealistic standards of beauty, launching a new wave of feminism in the early 1990s. Her new book Vagina: A New Biography was released in September 2012. Wolf is a regular columnist for Project Syndicate, a frequent blogger for The Huffington Post, and writes cultural commentary for the Washington Post, Harper’s Bazaar, The New York Times, and The Wall St. Journal. Currently, she’s finishing a doctoral program on the history of discrimination law at Oxford University.
