Born In: Montreal, Canada
Naomi Klein is an award-winning author, journalist and syndicated columnist. She is also a fellow at The Nation Institute and the author of the New York Times best-sellers, ‘The Shock Doctrine’ and ‘No Logo’. At a time when cartoons, toys and doll-houses were of primary importance in a girl’s life, Klein was attracted towards designer clothes, fancy merchandise and complicated product advertisements; a queer quality that made her stand out from the rest. An advocate of consumerism, Klein was always drawn towards creative pursuits from a young age and began writing for ‘The Varsity’, a student newspaper, while in college. It was through this she boldly began to express her views and thoughts on feminism; many of which were taken quite negatively. However, one major incident brought a complete change to her views and her life; the massacre at the University of Montreal, where fourteen engineering students who were women, were killed in open-fire. It was this incident that brought out the feminist in her and since then, she has campaigned on a wide range of issues concerning gender visibility, pseudo-social reforms, capitalism, racism, rape and misogyny.
