Jessica Valenti has led the national conversation on modern feminism for more than a decade. A New York Times best-selling author of five books and a columnist at the Guardian US, she has also been widely credited with sparking the online wave of the women’s movement. Valenti’s “The Purity Myth” was made into a documentary by the Media Education Foundation, and “Yes Means Yes” inspired sexual assault legislation of the same name across the country and on campuses. Her most recent book, “Sex Object: A Memoir” was called “bold and unflinching” by Publishers Weekly. Valenti’s articles have topped the most-read lists at The Atlantic, the Guardian US, and The Washington Post. She has also written for The New York Times, Salon, The American Prospect, Bitch, Ms. Magazine, and The Toast.
