She has appeared on “The TODAY Show,” MSNBC, and “The O’Reilly Factor” and speaks widely at conferences and colleges.

Courtney E. Martin has been called “one of our most insightful culture critics and one of our finest young writers” by Parker Palmer, and her writing has been described as “varied, transformational, and necessary for us all” by Jane Fonda and “a hardcover punch in the gut” by Arianna Huffington.

In addition, Courtney consults with social justice organizations throughout the nation, including the Paley Center for Media, Ms. Foundation for Women, the National Council for Research on Women, the Women’s Funding Network, The International Museum of Women, and The Women’s Therapy Centre Institute.
