Journalist and social justice activist Letty Cottin Pogrebin is the founding editor of Ms. magazine, a national flagship platform for feminist journalism launched in 1971 that brazenly helped to shape the anti-sexist movement. Pogrebin is the bestselling author of eight books of nonfiction, including How To Make It In a Man’s World, Growing Up Free, and Deborah, Golda, and Me: Being Female and Jewish in America, as well as the novel Three Daughters. She is a founder of the National Women’s Political Caucus and a past president of The Authors Guild and Americans for Peace Now. Pogrebin is also a breast cancer survivor, and her new book provides thoughtful guidance on how to be present for an ailing loved one.
