In sizing up the alleged boons of vaginal liberation, Wolf refuses to acknowledge the actual levers of oppression that subjugate bona fide vagina owners in this country today. This might be more forgivable if Vagina was more of an autobiography ... but Vagina is instead dressed up like a serious political tract with all sorts of utopian notions of healing the world, and the psychic wounds of all the world's women. —Natasha Vargas-Cooper
Naomi Wolf has tried hard to look at female sexuality as it really is, not as pop culture or political correctness would like it to be ... The science of female arousal is complex and woefully neglected, and Wolf has done us all a favour by trying to drag it into the mainstream -- Jemima Lewis Mail on Sunday Wolf's tome could not be better timed ... at a time when Western women's bodies have never been more highly politicised, the one person who might be able to shine a ray of light ... has to be Wolf. Perhaps this history will do for 21st century activism what The Beauty Myth did for 1990s feminists ... Wolf is exploring territory we haven't heard about since Germaine Greer in the 1970 -- Viv Groskop Independent on Sunday Worth respecting, even celebrating ... there is [here] a very intriguing thesis about love ... If you are one of those School of Cosmo feminists who has been arguing for decades that women should be more like men sexually ... then Wolf's take is genuinely revolutionary -- Sarah Vine The Times Part memoir, part cultural history and part scientific journey around women's sexuality, the best elements of which illuminate how little women generally know about their own anatomy -- Emma Brockes Guardian Writing with her signature blend of poetry and polemics, Naomi Wolf delivers a fiercely courageous portrait of female sexuality in the twenty-first century. As usual, Wolf writes what others are afraid to say. -- Susan Cain, author of New York Times bestseller QUIET --This text refers to the Paperback edition.See all Editorial Reviews
