American writer, the daughter of writer Anne Roiphe.
She graduated from Harvard with a Ph.D. and from Princeton with a degree in English literature. After writing many magazine pieces, her first book catapulted her into a media spotlight at 24, "The Morning After: Sex, Fear, and Feminism on Campus," Little, Brown, 1993.
The book addressed issues of violence against women, victimization, and contemporary feminist thinking. It addressed the issue of whether a woman has control over her own sexuality or is she now, as historically, subjected to the power and disposition of men.
Roiphe has been compared to controversial women's studies writer Camille Paglia.
