Caitlin Moran is a Times columnist and author of feminist manifestos. Her books and weekly columns explore everything from sex and marriage to motherhood and body image, highlighting the existential joys and angst of modern womanhood.
Caitlin Moran is one of Britain’s most influential columnists, interviewers and critics and an award-winning author. She is well known and loved for her feminist activism and humorous exploration of what it means to be a woman in the modern world.
Raised and home-schooled on a council estate with her seven siblings, she always knew she would be a writer. By the age of 18, she had already published her first novel, The Chronicles of Narmo, became a columnist at The Times. She continues to make readers of The Times laugh out loud with her weekly stories and think pieces on the experiences of women and girls, sex, marriage and the existential joys and angsts of modern parenthood.
She also went on to write several more books including the multi-award-winning bestseller How to Be a Woman, a memoir of her early life and learnings on feminism. The sequel, More Than a Woman, reflects on some of the mistakes of its predecessor and explores what it means to be a middle-aged woman. Her first novel, How to Build a Girl, was also highly successful (and later made into a feature film) and together with her sister, she wrote and produced the Channel 4 sitcom Raised by Wolves.
Caitlin has notably used her platform to draw attention to the prevalence of online abuse. She organised an online protest to boycott Twitter for 24 hours, partly in response to a slew of death threats sent to the campaigner Caroline Criado-Perez. This led to Caitlin's Twitter feed becoming a controversial addition to the list of English A-Level set texts.
She has won a number of awards for her journalism, including several Columnist of the Year awards, as well as Interviewer and Critic of the Year.
