Literary Birthday – 12 November – Naomi Wolf

Happy Birthday, Naomi Wolf, born 12 November 1962.

Three Quotes

  1. I’m a big believer in debate and difference of opinion.
  2. A Mother who radiates self-love and self-acceptance actually VACCINATES her daughter against low self-esteem.
  3. For all the power of video and film, I am not giving up my pen. I am just much more likely to try to link essays to webcasts or videos. The best way for these two media to move forward, to inform and make change, is in tandem; together they are more than the sum of their parts.

Naomi Wolf is an American author and former political consultant. After the publication of The Beauty Myth, which became a best seller in 1991, she became a leading spokesperson of what was later described as the third wave of the feminist movement.
