Harriet Fraad (born 19 August, 1941) is a feminist activist, psychotherapist and hypnotherapist. She is said to be a founding member of the Feminist movement, owed in part to her founding of the Woman’s Liberation Movement in 1968. She is the wife of Marxist economist and intellectual Richard D. Wolff.
Fraad was born to a paediatrician father, Lewis M. Fraad and a housewife mother, Irma London who both had leftist sympathies. Her father worked for the Comintern in Vienna from 1932 to 1936 and was a member of the Communist Party of America from 1929 to 1957. Her maternal grandfather was Horace London, the brother and campaign manager of Meyer London.
