Goodman, Ellen, Boston Globe columnist
Ellen Goodman, a native of Massachusetts, has also made a home for herself on the editorial page of the Boston Globe. Goodman worked as a researcher and reporter for both Newsweek and the Detroit Free Press before receiving the desirable offer of feature writer from the Boston Globe in 1967. Goodman writes with the intention of attracting the female reader, discussing topics such as parenting, feminism, relationships, and even gardening, a more casual subject. Her column has become one of the most widely read columns throughout the country, appearing in almost four hundred and fifty newspapers. Goodman has been honored with the Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Commentary (1980) and the Hubert H. Humphrey Civil Rights Award (1988), among many others.
