Author, social critic, and political activist Naomi Wolf launched a new wave of feminism with her landmark first book, The Beauty Myth, which challenged the cosmetics industry and the marketing of unrealistic standards of beauty. The New York Times called it one of the most important books of the 20th century. Her other books include the New York Times bestsellers Fire with Fire, Promiscuities, and The End of America, and she is a frequent contributor to the Huffington Post, the Guardian, the Washington Post, and Harper’s Bazaar. With Vagina: A New Biography, Wolf turns her exacting eye to the science and cultural history of the vagina, reframing our understanding of womanhood.
