If feminism is enjoying a revival among young women, much of the credit should go to women like Jessica Valenti. Cited as the "poster girl for third-wave feminism" by Salon and one of the Top 100 Inspiring Women in the world by The Guardian - Valenti is the author of three books: "Full Frontal Feminism: A Young Woman's Guide to Why Feminism Matters," "He's a Stud, She's a Slut ... and 49 Other Double Standards Every Woman Should Know," and "The Purity Myth: How America's Obsession with Virginity is Hurting Young Women." She is also the creator of Feministing.com, a site for younger feminists who felt their voices were ignored. Feministing.com, called "head and shoulders above almost any writing on women's issues in mainstream media" by Columbia Journalism Review helped spark an explosion of blogs and online communities that effectively shifted the movement online and helped create a new heyday for feminism.
