  Naomi Wolf Monday 10 September 2001  
A decade ago the American feminist Naomi Wolf wrote The Beauty Myth exploding the conspiracy surrounding the ideal of the thin model.

Now as a mother of two she's turned her attention to the hidden truths behind giving birth. From the increase in medical intervention to the lack of services for women with young children - Wolf talks to Jenni about what feminism has done for mothers in the last 30 years.
