Her influential exposes include Cinderella At My Daughter: Dispatches from the Front Lines of the New Girlie-Girl Culture (2011) and Girls & Sex: Navigating the Complicated New Landscape (2016). Orenstein has also penned a bestselling and candid memoir about her personal struggles with infertility and motherhood. She has been featured on a dozen major media outlets, including Nightline, CBS This Morning, The Today Show, and NPR's Fresh Air and Morning Edition. In 2012, the Columbia Journalism Review named Orenstein one of "40 Women Who Changed the Media Business Over 40 Years." Her latest project is a wide-ranging anthology, Don't Call Me Princess: Essays on Girls, Women, Sex and Life.
