Adele M. Stan is a journalist and editor whose work has appeared in The New Republic, the Village Voice, The Nation, Salon.com and Mother Jones magazine, as well as on the op-ed pages of the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the San Francisco Chronicle and the New York Daily News. She began her media career at Ms. magazine, where she served both on staff and as a contributing editor.
Along the way, Stan developed expertise in covering the intersection of religion and politics, in addition to lifelong specialties in women's issues and pop culture. Her Mother Jones cover story on the religious right is considered by many to be a definitive primer on the movement; a special 10,000-copy reprint sold out its print run.
Those who gradutated college with women's studies majors are familiar with Stan's book, Debating Sexual Correctness, in which the author details the porn wars, date rape controversy and theory on sexual harassment that helped define the modern feminist movement.
Adele M. Stan has also served as a contributing writer to Mother Jones, and Washington correspondent for Working Woman.
Outside of the office, Stan indulges an array of interests, with music taking center stage. She is in the midst of planning a second career as a lounge-singing ukulele-player.
