Canadian journalist and activist Naomi Klein's bestseller No Logo quickly became a manifesto for the anti-globalization movement. In this January 2000 interview, Klein discusses the protests at the 1998 World Trade Organization meeting in Seattle. She says they were a sign of a growing populist movement fed up with the increasing power and reach of multi-national corporations. 
• Naomi Klein is not the first in her family to lambaste a powerful industry: her mother Bonnie wrote and directed Not A Love Story, a 1981 documentary questioning the legality of pornography and examining how it negatively affects the lives of women in the industry.

• In 2005, Klein ranked 11th on Prospect magazine's list of the top 100 global intellectuals, the highest-ranked woman on the list.
