Michele Goodwin, UCI Law Chancellor’s Professor of Law, Named Executive Producer of Ms. Studios



The University of California, Irvine School of Law (UCI Law) is delighted to share that Chancellor’s Professor of Law and Director of the Center for Biotechnology and Global Health Policy, Michele Goodwin, has been named the executive producer of Ms. Studios. In this role, she will oversee a multimedia platform consisting of podcasts, companion website, a writers room and events for women-led journalism.

Ms. Magazine, founded in 1972, was the first nationally circulated magazine to bring feminism and the women’s rights movement into the mainstream. After 50 years of being one of the most trusted and popular sources for feminist news in print and online, it is charting a new path in journalism with the addition of Ms. Studios.

“Women have been articulating about the importance of democracy, equality, the rule of law, dating back to the very founding of this country,” said Prof. Goodwin. “We are looking to continue with that drumbeat and help lift up other media that cares about women’s voices. We will be bringing dynamic voices from around the country and world to pitch ideas from individuals who have not been traditionally included such as women, people of color and LGBT communities.”

Prof. Goodwin is a frequent contributor to Ms. Magazine and is the host of the popular podcast, On the Issues with Michele Goodwin at Ms. Magazine.
