Naomi Wolf is an American writer. At a relatively young age, she became literary star of what was later described as the ‘third-wave’ of the feminist movement and she is also known for her advocacy of progressive politics.

Wolf, in April 2007, wrote an article published in The Guardian, a UK paper, describing the 10 step slide towards fascism that the United States has taken. This article is an adaptation from her latest book The End of America: A Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot which was published in September 2007.
