"In the feminist arena I have come across two sorts of activists: the ones who work every day on behalf of the truly disadvantaged to bring them healthcare, education, protection from violence, and political rights; and the grandstanders, the faux-Joan of Arcs ready for martyrdom as long as it’s in front of the cameras. They disgust me."

She is a columnist for The Wall Street Journal, The Sunday Times, and The Smithsonian Magazine. Her latest work is the BBC documentary series, 'The Ascent of Woman'.
