Naomi Wolf is one of the most widely read feminist in America right now, and has gained notoriety overseas with her many books, the first of which was published in 1990 entitled The Beauty Myth. She has had subsequent books since then: Promiscuities (1998); Misconceptions (2001); and more recently The End of America (2007).
From what I've read, Wolf thinks of herself as a liberal feminist as apposed to the more traditional radical feminist. But whatever the difference between those two lexicons, I think it's fair to conclude that there is a misguided militancy to her political activism and as well as to her social views, which ultimately negates her message and makes her appear as a frenetic extremist. In the following short video, Wolf discusses her book The End of America, in which she compares President Bush to Hitler and Stalin, and also formulates a list of ten indications why democracy in this country is defunct.
Naomi Wolf is indeed attractive, which makes her an ironic symbol for a societal tenet that most feminists will agree with: looks do not constitute truth.
Years ago Naomi spoke about a mystical experience in which she met Jesus in the body of a little boy. But that's for another post.
