Author and Journalist
Described by The New York Times as being “known for her smarts and feminist bona fides,” Irin Carmon is a journalist, author and speaker. She is a contributing writer to the Washington Post’s Outlook section and the co-author of the bestselling book Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg (2015). In November, she teamed up with the Washington Post’s investigative team to break the long-buried story of sexual harassment allegations against Charlie Rose, which resulted in the television host’s firing from CBS and PBS. Previously, Carmon was a national reporter at MSNBC and NBC News, reporting on gender, politics, and the law, and a staff writer at Salon and at Jezebel. She graduated from Harvard College in 2005.
