Naomi Wolf: a round-up of some recent links

Last month, Naomi Wolf was quite vocal about the sex assault charges faced by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in her open letter to Interpol in the Huffington Post and her subsequent debate with Jaclyn Friedman (videos at Democracy Now: part 1, part 2).

And last week, Ms Wolf again became the focus of much media attention after her suggestion in The Guardian that not only should the women accusing Assange of rape be identified, but also that rape accusers in general shouldn’t be granted anonymity.

She went on to debate the subject with Louise Bagshawe, MP on the BBC’s Newsnight (video on BBC Newsnight web page) and World Have Your Say (podcast on the BBC WHYS web page).

Other responses to her Guardian piece are at (amongst others): Feministe, Shakesville, LudditeJourno, Samizdata, Shameless Mag and Student Activism – and the Twitter hashtag #MooreandMe (a Twitter campaign to support the two Swedish women) is still being added to as I write this.
