Feminist activist Naomi Wolf claims that she was raped by a male babysitter when she was only seven-years-old.

The activist felt inspired by the #MeToo movement to finally speak out about abuse 48 years later.

The 55-year-old American writer said that she was attacked twice over two nights and described the ordeal as the closest she had ever come to death.

She revealed her ordeal to The Sunday Times Newspaper.

"I am a survivor of rape as a child by a male babysitter. Every woman I know who has been raped, including myself, thought she might have been about to die.

"'What is damaging is the experience of being absolutely nothing in the presence of another human being."

Wolf, a former adviser to Bill Clinton, has slammed fellow feminist Germaine Greer's controversial new book, 'On Rape', which is released soon.


In her book, Greer - who was raped as a teenager - says that 'most rape is just lazy, careless, just insensitive'.

However, Wolf, hit back at these claims.

She said: "I was orally raped on the first night and vaginally raped the following day. Does the first night somehow not count? I can assure Greer that the first night was no less traumatic than the next day."
