Miriam Peskowitz is the author of The Truth Behind the Mommy Wars. Miriam Peskowitz blogs at PlaygroundRevolution.com, at MomsRising.org, and at EverydayMomBlog.com.
Circa 2010, she and two friends launched MotherTalk (www.mother-talk.com), a business that builds community among women, mothers, bloggers and authors, both online and in the coziness of our living rooms.
Miriam Peskowitz holds a PhD in Religion and Women's Studies, and is the author of two critically acclaimed academic books, Judaism Since Gender and Spinning Fantasies. She was an award-winning and tenured professor at the University of Florida, and has also taught at Emory University, Temple University, and the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College. She left her tenured post in 1998 when her first child was born and her workplace had no formal family leave policy for professors. Since then, she has devoted herself to raising awareness of the challenges and discrimination that women and mothers still face in our society. She does this because she truly believes that America can be a place where all of us find justice.
