    After the release of The Beauty Myth in 1990, Naomi Wolf became the voice of Third Wave Feminism. Now, with the publication of her new controversial book Vagina: A New Biography, Naomi Wolf looks closely at the “mind-vagina connection.” After researching this important connection by speaking to scientists and sexuality experts, and by delving more deeply into cultural and sociological mores, Wolf gives us a new perspective on what she feels women really need. She does this by re-evaluating sexual relationships and the relationship women have to themselves. Her views, she believes, are life altering, and will change the way women see themselves.
