Suzanne Braun Levine is a writer, editor, and authority on women, families, media, and changing gender roles. She was the first editor of Ms. magazine and the first female editor of the Columbia Journalism Review. She reports on the changes in women�s lives in her books; on her website, television, and radio; and as a blogger for AARP, Huff/Post 50, Next Avenue, Feminist.com, and others. She is on the board of Encore.org and the Ms. Foundation for Education and Communication, is on the Advisory Board for the Women�s Media Center and the Transition Network, and is a contributing editor at More magazine.

Most recently she wrote the e-book You Gotta Have Girlfriends: A Post-50 Posse Is Good for Your Health. It is a continuation of her ongoing conversation with women in second adulthood, the new stage of life she celebrated in her popular books Inventing the Rest of Our Lives, Fifty Is the New Fifty, and How We Love Now.

Her pioneering book on how men are changing the role of fatherhood, Father Courage: What Happens When Men Put Family First, was published in 2000. In 2007, she coauthored (with Mary Thom) a widely acclaimed oral history of New York congresswoman Bella Abzug. While at Ms. she developed, conceived, and produced the Peabody Award�winning HBO special She�s Nobody�s Baby: American Women in the 20th Century and edited the book based on the documentary. She was editor-in-chief of the 30th-anniversary issue of Ms. and was honored as a �Ms. Woman of the Year� in 2004.
