This summer I got fairly uppity trying to convince everyone to read Naomi Wolf's latest book, Vagina. The good news? Loads of people are reading it, loving it, and recommending it. Here's un petit roundup, including your chance to catch Naomi in person.
"I felt – on both a creative and a physical level – that I had been punished for 'going somewhere' that women are not supposed to go." The Guardian has an excerpt from Vagina on sexist language, performative utterances, and their effect on the female brain.
"Does really special sex, sex that engages the vagina, emotions, and body in very specific ways — ways that involve very concrete kinds of activation of the parasympathetic nervous system — actually lead to female euphoria, creativity, and self-love?" Find out in an exclusive excerpt via New York Magazine's blog, The Cut.
Need reading recommendations? Naomi has curated a list of books about gender for Goodreads. Check 'em out!
And if you're in the tristate area, head on over to BookCourt next week for Naomi's release party. I'm especially excited for the audience Q&A.
