Irin Carmon

Author and MSNBC National Reporter

Described by The New York Times as being “known for her smarts and feminist bona fides,” Irin Carmon is an MSNBC national reporter. She is the co-author of Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, which spent three months on the Times bestseller list. “That I responded so personally to it is a testimony to Ms. Carmon’s storytelling and panache,” the paper’s staff book critic, Jennifer Senior, wrote of Notorious RBG. 

At MSNBC, Carmon focuses on gender, politics, and the law, with a special emphasis on reproductive rights and the Supreme Court. She is also a Visiting Fellow in the Program for the Study of Reproductive Justice at Yale Law School. Her work covering women’s rights has been honored by the Sidney Hillman Foundation, NARAL Pro-Choice New York, and Planned Parenthood. In 2011, she was one of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in Media, which described her as a “confident and passionate polemicist.”

She graduated from Harvard, magna cum laude with highest honors in literature, in 2005, and from the Waldorf School of Garden City in 2001.

“I am so grateful that Waldorf nurtured my creativity and taught me to be a more, well-rounded person.”
