Susan Maushart

Journalist, broadcaster and recovering academic Dr. Susan Maushart is the author of five books, including the feminist classics The Mask of Motherhood and Wifework and the internationally acclaimed memoir and BBC Book of the Week The Winter of Our Disconnect (soon to be a minor motion picture).

As an independent producer for ABC radio, Susan’s popular series Multiple Choice and StoryCatcher were heard across Australia, and she has appeared as a commentator on The Today Show, Lateline, CNN, Fox & Friends and many, many others. Most recently, Maushart has lectured in media at Fordham University in New York City, where she blogs for the Huffington Post. The mother of three, Susan lived in Western Australia from 1986 to 2010, and now makes her second home - with hospital corners – on the East End of Long Island.
