Rebecca Traister is the author of the award-winning Big Girls Don’t Cry, the New York Times bestselling All the Single Ladies and Good and Mad: The Revolutionary Power of Women’s Anger, which was named one of the ten best books of 2018 by The Washington Post. Vivian Gornick says, “Every fifty years since the French Revolution there’s been an uprising on behalf of women’s rights—we’re in the middle of one right now—and each time around a fresh chorus of voices is heard, making the same righteous bid for social and political equality, only with more force and more eloquence than the time before. Among today’s strongest voices is the one that belongs to Rebecca Traister.” A National Magazine Award winner, she is writer at large for New York Magazine, and has written about women in politics, media, and entertainment from a feminist perspective for Elle, The New Republic and Salon and has also contributed to The Nation, The New York Observer, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Vogue, Glamour and Marie Claire.
