Author, social critic, and political activist Naomi Wolf campaigns on the pervasive inequities that exist in society and politics, encouraging people to take charge of their lives, voice their concerns and enact change. Wolf’s landmark international bestseller, The Beauty Myth, challenged the cosmetics industry and the marketing of unrealistic standards of beauty, and launched a new wave of feminism in the early 1990s. Her new book is Vagina: A New Biography. Wolf makes the case that the vagina is so much more than a sex organ – it is integral to female wellbeing, and a catalyst to female creativity, confidence, identity and wellbeing. How we understand it is key to how we understand women. Wolf looks at the latest neuroscience to reveal new discoveries about the vagina and female sexuality, exploring sexual relationships, pornography, historical, literary and cultural records. After reading Wolf, no man will be unaware of ‘what women really need’, and no woman will ever experience herself in quite the same way again.
