Born in 1941 is an award-winning poet, novelist, political theorist, feminist activist, journalist, editor, and best-selling author. Morgan has published more than 20 books, including the now-classic anthologies Sisterhood Is Powerful and Sisterhood Is Global.

Her books include the novels Dry Your Smile and The Mer-Child: A Legend for Children and Other Adults; nonfiction Going Too Far, The Word of A Woman, and The Anatomy of Freedom. Her work has been translated into 13 languages. Recent books include Saturday’s Child: A Memoir, and The Demon Lover: The Roots of Terrorism. Her long-awaited novel on the Inquisition—The Burning Time—was released in March of 2006 and Fighting Words: A Tool Kit for Combating the Religious Right came out in September 2006. Founder of The Sisterhood Is Global Institute, and, recently, co-founder and Board Member of The Women's Media Center, she has co-founded and serves on the boards of many women’s organizations in the US and abroad. In 1990, as Ms. Editor-in-Chief, she relaunched the magazine as an international, award-winning, ad-free bimonthly, resigning in late 1993 to become Consulting Global Editor. A recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts Prize (Poetry), and numerous other honors, she lives in New York City.
