The American Prospect — New York, NY

Michelle Goldberg is a journalist and author based in New York. Her first book, the New York Times bestseller Kingdom Coming: The Rise of Christian Nationalism, was about the influence of Christian fundamentalism on American politics. After Kingdom Coming came out, Goldberg spent two years traveling the world to research her next book, The Means of Reproduction: Sex, Power and the Future of the World, a book about the global battle over reproductive rights, a battle pitting an international alliance of religious conservatives against feminists, public health professionals and liberal politicians worldwide.

Her work has also appeared in The Nation, The New Republic, The LA Times and many other publications in the U.S. and abroad.
