Susan Faludi biography
American feminist, journalist and author Susan Faludi was born in Queens, New York, on April 18, 1959. Faludi started out as a copy clerk at The New York Times and, by 1990, had joined The Wall Street Journal. In 1991, she won a Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Journalism and also published Backlash: The Undeclared War Against American Women. The book argues that the media distort news about women in order to retaliate against feminist advances.
