Her father was the anarchist Nicolas Walter and her grandfather was the neuroscientist William Grey Walter.

She is the author of the The New Feminism, published by Virago in 1998, and her new book Living Dolls will be published in 2010. This book looks at the resurgence of sexism in contemporary culture.

I am ready to admit that I was wrong."
