Naomi Wolf takes on Michelle Obama

In Naomi's book review article which ran today in the Washington Post she looks at Bad Girls Go Everywhere, The Life of Helen Gurley Brown, by Jennifer Scanlon. She points out the Michele Obama's recent rise to fashionista role model and demure sex object all at the same time as an example of where we are in feminism today. Her question and my question is have we finally come to a place where women do not have to conform or be relegated into a box that they cannot break out of, or else? Can we be sexy, feminime, smart, influencial leaders all at the same time. Are we there? Michelle Obama, America's Sweetheart or Diva?
