An alumna of the University of Missouri’s School of Journalism, Ann earned her stripes as an editor for Mother Jones, Feministing and GOOD magazine, before co-founding the punchy, Kickstarter-funded publication Tomorrow in 2012. As well as a contributing editor of The Gentlewoman, she is a regular contributor to NYmag.com, Elle, Rolling Stone and the Columbia Journalism Review. She also co-hosts the wildly popular podcast Call Your Girlfriend, is a fervent proponent of the pie-chart, and the author of the Internet’s favourite newsletter, The Ann Friedman Weekly.
