She is a writer-at-large for New York Magazine and The Cut and has been called “the most brilliant voice on feminism in this country” (Anne Lamott).
Traister’s writing has been featured in numerous outlets, including The New York Times, Vogue, Glamour, and The Washington Post, among others, and she has made television appearances on CNN, PBS, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Daily Show, and more. She lives in New York with her family.
