- What is a feminist? You are a feminist if you believe:
- Women matter as much as men do.
- Women have the right to determine their lives.
- Women's experiences matter.
- Women have the right to tell the truth about their experiences.
- Women deserve more of whatever it is they are not getting
enough of because they are women: respect, self-respect, education,
safety, health, representation, money.

Congress, mind your mamas

"Looking back on 200 years of feminist agitation in this
country, we've got to get it that the moral high ground doesn't get
us anything. Pleading with powerful men never gets us what we need.
Talking doesn't do it. Being right doesn't do it. Hardball politics
does it ... and a political strategy." -- Naomi Wolf
Wolf: 4 questions for the author and feminist
queries the author of Misconceptions.
"Birth centers feel, oddly, like the opposite of even

about health, not crisis. It is about life processes, not a series
of unhappy conditions; relaxed and cheerful, with no fear." --

Q: In which area of
Western society do you think the women's movement has had most impact,
and where has it had the least? (from Tracy Johnson)
A: Obviously Norway and Scandinavian countries
in general come closest to full equality for women and statistically
I think that countries like Greece and Italy usually come last in
assessments of women's status. Having said that, since I personally
am closest to events in North America and the UK, and since those
countries corner the market on the rhetoric of democracy, I find the
gaps between ideals and reality when it comes to women the most aggravating
- An organisation co-founded by Wolf.
Until now, no single entity existed to train women in assuming ethical
leadership roles. The Woodhull Institute was founded to create a
community where women can acquire business acumen, develop personal
and professional skills, meet inspiring role models and mentors
and belong to an empowering network where ideas are generated and
exchanged. -- The Woodhull Institute

Statement to Dying to be Thin

Congressional Briefing - July, 1997
"I, unfortunately know all too much about anorexia from
my own personal experience. The reason I wanted to question what was
the conventional wisdom when I first began looking at this issue,
was that when I remembered how I became anorexic, it wasn't a particularly
neurotic process. When I was thirteen, perfectly average sized kid,
a boy, Bobby Sherman, poked me in the stomach, and said 'Watch it
Wolf.' The implication was that I was getting chubby and I immediately
did what Cosmo suggest that I should do." -- Naomi Wolf
