Jaclyn Friedman

Author of "What You Really Want: The Smart Girl's Shame-Free Guide to Sex and Safety"

 Jaclyn Friedman Biography

Jaclyn Friedman, through writing, performing and speaking, has helped redefine the concept of "healthy sexuality" for young women. Her tireless work and activism has also helped build a culture of sexual safety and acceptance for women on campuses all over the country.

When she was a college undergraduate, Jaclyn thought she was too smart to become a victim of sexual assault - until another student proved her wrong. That experience eventually led her to become a student and instructor of IMPACT safety training, where she brought safety skills to the communities which most need them, including gang-involved high school students and women transitioning out of abusive relationships.

Jaclyn's hit book "Yes Means Yes: Visions of Female Sexual Power and a World Without Rape" placed No. 11 on Ms. Magazine's Top 100 Feminist Nonfiction of All Time list. Her two landmark pieces: the interview "F*cking While Feminist" and the highly personal polemic "My Sluthood, Myself," inspired thousands of responses and explorations across the blogosphere and beyond.

Because of her insistence that authentic sexual liberation is a necessary condition to end the systemic sexualization and violation of women, Jaclyn has been called "this generation's version of Dr. Ruth." She was named one of 2009's Top 40 Progressive Leaders Under 40 by the New Leaders Council. Jaclyn's newest book, "What You Really Really Want: The Smart Girl's Shame-Free Guide to Sex & Safety," was released in November 2011.

Friedman is a founder and the executive director of Women, Action & the Media, a national organization working for gender justice in media. She is also a charter member of CounterQuo, a coalition dedicated to challenging the ways we respond to sexual violence. Friedman holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Emerson College.
