LONGER BIO: 

Suzanne Venker is an author and cultural critic who writes about relationships, marriage, and work-family conflict. A nationally recognized expert on America’s gender war, she’s a Fox News contributor, as well as a columnist at PJ Media and at the Washington Examiner.

Suzanne’s latest book (available February 2017) is The Alpha Female’s Guide to Men & Marriage: HOW LOVE WORKS. Part memoir/part advice, the book helps women own their femininity, or find their inner beta, so they can in turn find peace and passion with a man. For more information on The Alpha Female’s Guide, click here.

Suzanne’s bestselling eBook, “The War on Men,” tackles America’s gender war and was fashioned from her article of the same name that became the most read op-ed in Fox News history. The result was a barrage of media backlash and an appearance on “The View,” where Suzanne enjoyed friendly banter with guest host Mike Tyson while fielding attacks from Whoopi and Joy.

In How to Choose a Husband, Suzanne encourages women to reject cultural messages that undermine their desire to settle down with a husband and kids. It gives no-nonsense, honest advice about what women need to look for in a man if they want to get married and stay married.

The Flipside of Feminism takes an in depth look at second-wave feminism and its aftermath as it relates to sex, marriage, work, motherhood and politics.

Suzanne’s first book, 7 Myths of Working Mothers, was re-released in 2014 as The Two-Income Trap. It takes a contrarian view of work-family balance by encouraging women to sequence their lives so they can reap the rewards of motherhood. The book was translated into Spanish in 2007.

Suzanne’s writing has appeared in many publications, including Time, USA TodayParents, the New York Post, Heatstreet, and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch; and her work has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, The Atlantic, The Economist, The Huffington Post and London’s Daily Mail. Her TV credits include STOSSEL, The View, ABC, CNN, C-Span’s Book TV, and more. She has appeared on hundreds of radio shows throughout the country; and her work has been featured on “The Dr. Laura Program,” “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and “The Rush Limbaugh Show.”

Suzanne graduated from Boston University in 1986. Today she lives in St. Louis, MO, with her husband of 18 years and their two teenagers. When Suzanne isn’t busy writing, you can find her doing yoga moves to relieve the stress her body endures from sitting in front of a computer for hours at a time. She really needs to get one of those standing desks.
