Arianna Huffington was born on July 15, 1950, in Athens, Greece. At the age of 16, she moved to England, graduating from Cambridge University with an M.A. in Economics. She has been a noted columnist and reviewer for such magazines as Vogue and Cosmopolitan and is highly praised for her writings.

Her first book, The Female Woman, is a criticism of extremism in the feminist movement, detailing the shortcomings of the women's liberation movement.
