Suzanne Braun Levine is a writer, editor and nationally recognized authority on women and family issues and media. She was the first editor of Ms. magazine and the only woman editor of the Columbia Journalism Review. In her recent work Levine has defined a new stage of life – Women in Second Adulthood – and she reports on the ongoing changes in women’s lives in her books, on her website, on television and radio, as a frequent guest blogger and lecturer.
She is an advisor to several women’s and media groups, and organizations dealing with midlife transitions and on the Board of Civic Ventures, a nonprofit think tank on boomers, work and social purpose.
Her features – “Inventing the Rest of My Life” – appear on the More magazine’s web site; she is also a Contributing Editor to the magazine. She is a contributor to Encore.org, The Transition Network, ThirdAge.com, VibrantNation.com, SheWrites.com and a regular guest on “Feisty Side of Fifty” Radio with host Mary Eileen Williams, the founder of Feistysideoffifty.com.
Suzanne’s new book, HOW WE LOVE NOW:: Sex and the New Intimacy in Second Adulthood (Viking/January 2, 2012) is the groundbreaking, funny, poignant and sometimes shocking “next chapter” in Levine’s ongoing conversation with Women In Second Adulthood, the stage she celebrated in two popular books: INVENTING THE REST OF OUR LIVES (Viking, 2005) and FIFTY IS THE NEW FIFTY (Viking, 2009).
From its founding in 1972 to 1988, Levine edited Ms. magazine the feminist publication which popularized the designation of Ms. for women, pioneered a new kind of personal reporting and political activism in its pages – now core elements of women’s engagement and activism on the Web.
