The amazing women at WOW have asked us to share this information with you all about an event next week with feminist writer Naomi Wolf:
As part of our evening programme we are delighted to welcome internationally acclaimed author, social critic and political activist Naomi Wolf for an in-depth discussion of her life, work, and her latest book.
Wolf discusses pornography and rape, as well as intimacy and sensuality. Plus she talks about how men – or anyone who loves women – can learn from the latest research about how really to understand the nature of female pleasure and its importance.
Wolf’s first book ‘The Beauty Myth’ (published in 1991) challenged the cosmetics industry and the marketing of unrealistic standards of beauty. It went on to become a bestseller and was credited with launching a new wave of feminism.
In her latest best-selling book, Wolf makes the case that the vagina is much more than a sex organ. It is integral to female well-being, and is one catalyst to female creativity, confidence and identity. It was also named Publishers’ Weekly Best Science Book of the Season.
