The New Feminism
What is a feminist? You are a feminist if you believe:
  1. Women matter as much as men do.
  2. Women have the right to determine their lives.
  3. Women's experiences matter.
  4. Women have the right to tell the truth about their experiences.
  5. 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.

  6. -- Naomi Wolf, Fire With Fire

Congress, mind your mamas
J. Trout Lowen's November, 2001 on the formation of MOTHER (Mothers Ought To Have Equal Rights), appearing in Minnesota Women's Press.

"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

Naomi Wolf: 4 questions for the author and feminist queries the author of Misconceptions.

"Birth centers feel, oddly, like the opposite of even the best hospital obstetrics ward. It is about vitality, not technique; about health, not crisis. It is about life processes, not a series of unhappy conditions; relaxed and cheerful, with no fear." -- Naomi Wolf

Naomi Wolf answers your questions
Readers of the UK's The Guardian newspaper query Wolf on a wide variety of subjects, many of them quite personal, some profound, and some, well, rather ordinary.

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 there.

The Woodhull Institute
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
From her address at Dying to be Thin: The prevention of eating disorders and the role of Federal policy, An APA Co-Sponsored 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
