Sady Doyle

Likes monsters.


Sady Doyle is the author of Trainwreck: The Women We Love to Hate, Mock, and Fear... and Why (Melville House 2016), a book on how we build up and tear down rebellious women, from the French Revolution to Perez Hilton. It has been called "smart, funny and fearless" (Boston Globe), "compelling" and "persuasive" (New York Times Book Review), and "a deeply researched account of our culture’s misogynistic obsession with trainwrecks” (Portland Mercury); The Atlantic predicted that "Trainwreck will very likely join the feminist canon."

While waiting to join the feminist canon, to which she will bring a basket of muffins, Sady is a journalist and opinion writer living in upstate New York. 

In 2008, she founded the feminist blog Tiger Beatdown. While at Tiger Beatdown, she led several successful social media awareness campaigns, including #MooreandMe and #MenCallMeThings, and won the Women's Media Center Social Media Award in 2011. 

Sady has also been a staff writer at In These Times Magazine and Rookie Magazine (her pieces can be found in Rookie: Yearbook One and Yearbook Two) and contributed to the bestselling books Book of Jezebel and Nasty Women. Her work appears regularly at, QZ, and more. 

In addition to all of the above, she's spoken at Harvard, SXSW, and Netroots Nation. Her pieces have appeared in The Guardian, The Atlantic, The Awl, Buzzfeed, and all across the Internet. If you'd like to ask Sady to give a talk, or to write for you, please do come say hi.
