Gail Collins (born November 25, 1945[1]) is an American journalist, op-ed columnist and author, most recognized for her work with the New York Times.[2][3] Joining the Times in 1995 as a member of the editorial board, from 2001 to 2007 she served as the paper's Editorial Page Editor – the first woman to attain that position.[2] Collins writes a semi-weekly op-ed column for the Times, published Thursdays and Saturdays.[2] She also co-authors a blog with David Brooks, "The Conversation," at NYTimes.com, featuring political commentary.[4]

Biography[edit]

Born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1945 as Gail Gleason,[1] Collins has a B.A. in journalism from Marquette University[5] and an M.A. in government from the University of Massachusetts Amherst.[3] She wrote for Connecticut publications like the Hartford Advocate and, in 1972, founded the Connecticut State News Bureau, a news service providing coverage of the state capital and Connecticut politics; when she sold it in 1977, it had grown into the largest service of its kind in the United States.[2] Collins later wrote as a columnist for the New York Daily News, Newsday, and the Connecticut Business Journal, as a financial reporter for United Press International, and as a public affairs host for Connecticut Public Television.[2][6]

Collins joined The New York Times in 1995 as a member of the editorial board, and later as an op-ed columnist. In 2001, she was named the paper's first female Editorial Page Editor, a position she held for six years. She resigned from this post at the beginning of 2007 to take a six-month leave to focus on writing her book When Everything Changed: The Amazing Journey of American Women from 1960 to the Present, returning to the Times as a regular columnist in July 2007.[2]

Beyond her work as a journalist, Collins has published several books: The Millennium Book, which she co-authored with her husband, CBS News producer Dan Collins; Scorpion Tongues: Gossip, Celebrity and American Politics; America's Women: Four Hundred Years of Dolls, Drudges, Helpmates, and Heroines; the aforementioned When Everything Changed;[2][5] and As Texas Goes: How the Lone Star State Hijacked the American Agenda'.[7] She also wrote the introduction for the 50th anniversary edition of The Feminine Mystique by Betty Friedan; the 50th anniversary edition was published in 2013.[8]

Collins has also taught journalism at Southern Connecticut State University and, as of Fall 2009, Collins co-teaches (with Seth Lipsky) an opinion writing course in Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism. She occasionally appears alongside her New York Times colleague David Brooks as a fill-in for Mark Shields on PBS Newshour's Political Wrap. She has been a frequent guest on NPR[9] and on the radio talk show of Jon Wiener in Southern California.[10]
