From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Caitlin Flanagan (born 1961) is an American writer and social critic.[1] She is a former staff writer for The New Yorker and a contributing editor and book reviewer at The Atlantic Monthly.[2] Her book To Hell with All That: Loving and Loathing Our Inner Housewife was published by Little, Brown in April 2006 (ISBN 0316736872).

Born and raised in Berkeley, California, Flanagan holds a B.A. and an M.A. in Art History from the University of Virginia.

Flanagan is a breast cancer survivor.[3]

Before she found success as a writer, Flanagan was an English teacher and college counselor at the elite, private Harvard-Westlake school in North Hollywood, California. [4]

Her essays underscore the emotional rewards and social value of a traditional housewife's role, and she herself works from home, albeit with the help of a nanny and a housekeeper.[5][6] Consequently she has received criticism for misrepresenting her life choices, and then condemning other women for not choosing the more traditional lifestyle.[7]
