Nancy Colbert Friday (born August 27, 1933 in Pittsburgh) is an American author who has written on the topics of female sexuality and liberation. “Nancy Friday’s successful fantasy revelations (My Secret Garden, Forbidden Flowers) have seen her placed among the feminist erotic pioneers.” Her writings argue that women have often been reared under an ideal of womanhood, which was outdated and restrictive, and largely unrepresentative of many women’s true inner lives, and that openness about women’s hidden lives could help free women to truly feel able to enjoy being themselves (wikipedia)
