FEMINIST NAOMI WOLF TO SPEAK TONIGHT FOR PRESIDENT'S LECTURE SERIES

Feminist, author and social critic Naomi Wolf, who recently made headlines as a campaign adviser to Vice President Al Gore, will speak Thursday, March 23, as part of Old Dominion University's President's Lecture Series.

Wolf will discuss "Ethical Leadership for the 21st Century" at 8 p.m. in the Mills Godwin Jr. Building Auditorium. The lecture is free and open to the public.

Wolf serves as president of the board of The Woodhull Institute, an organization that cultivates ethical leadership for the 21st century. Its special focus is a fellowship program to teach professional development in business, law, arts and media to young women ages 21-28. Wolf also is working with Gore's daughter, Karenna Gore Schiff, on an Internet outreach effort to attract young voters to the presidential campaign.

Wolf's first book, "The Beauty Myth," helped her emerge as one of the grande dames of young feminism in 1991. She has also written "Fire with Fire: The New Female Power and How It Will Change the 21st Century" and "Promiscuities: The Secret Struggle for Womanhood." Her next work, "You Walk That Bridge Alone," a look at mothering, will be published this spring.
