Award-winning journalist and feminist icon Peggy Orenstein is a leading voice in the national conversations around gender norms and expectations. Her influential exposés include Cinderella At My Daughter: Dispatches from the Front Lines of the New Girlie-Girl Culture (2011) and Girls & Sex: Navigating the Complicated New Landscape (2016). Orenstein has also penned a bestselling and candid memoir about her personal struggles with infertility and motherhood. She has been featured on a dozen major media outlets, including Nightline, CBS This Morning, The Today Show, and NPR’s Fresh Air and Morning Edition. In 2012, the Columbia Journalism Review named Orenstein one of “40 Women Who Changed the Media Business Over 40 Years.” Her latest project is a wide-ranging anthology, Don’t Call Me Princess: Essays on Girls, Women, Sex and Life. Library Journal – among a host of other publications – praised it with a starred review, sure to “enrich the reader’s understanding of everything from abortion laws, to breast cancer, to pornography and body image.”

A podcast of Orenstein’s discussion will be available a few days after the event!
