The Beauty Myth author Naomi Wolf is joining the Guardian US website, Comment is Free.

Wolf will write a weekly column and will also appear live on the site weekly to interact with readers in the comments section.

Guardian US brings the Guardian’s hard-hitting investigative brand to a new focus on American news and opinion,” Wolf said.  “But Guardian US’s perspective is global as well as national; and there has never been a stronger need for a media platform that encourages America to talk engagedly to the rest of the world, and invites the rest of the world to talk directly to America.  It is for that reason that I am excited as well to be partnering in a new format of interactive opinion journalism, in which op-eds are an opening point for a direct online discussion and debate with the national and global community of Guardian US readers.”

Wolf joins other  journalists, such as Ana Marie Cox and Amanda Michel, appointments announced by the company in recent months that are part of its goal to create a hub for Guardian readers in the United States.
