Naomi WolfControversial American feminist Naomi Wolf came to the John Adams Institute in honor of the Dutch translation of her book, Promiscuities: A Secret Struggle for Womanhood. Wolf caused considerable commotion on both sides of the Atlantic with her first international bestseller, The Beauty Myth, in which she criticized the extent to which women remain enslaved by the strict aesthetic demands dictated by the western beauty ideal. In Promiscuities, Wolf combines her own memories about adolescent sexuality with information gathered from old friends about sexual experiences as teenagers. Wolf graduated from Yale and regularly contributes to publications like Esquire, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post.
