Robin Morgan was born in 1941 in Lake Worth, Florida. A precocious child, she was put to work as a child model and actor, but despite her work in radio and television, she vowed to become a poet and took classes at Columbia University. In the early 1960s she worked as a freelance editor and literary agent. Throughout the 1960s Morgan published poetry and contributed articles to such literary journals as The Sewanee Review and to such leftist publications as Rat, Win, and Liberation. By the late 1960s, after involvement in civil rights and peace activism, she committed herself to feminism, first becoming involved with the New York Radical Women, and later identifying as a radical feminist. During her time in New York Radical Women, she organized public actions with the group WITCH (Women's International Terrorist Conspiracy from Hell). During this time Morgan continued to write poetry and feminist works, publishing both Sisterhood Is Powerful: An Anthology of Writings from the Women's Liberation Movement in 1970, and Monster in 1972. By 1974 Morgan had become involved with Ms. magazine, serving as a columnist, and eventually as contributing editor, editor-in-chief, and international contributing editor. Morgan has published more than 20 books, including collections of poetry, such as Upstairs in the Garden: New and Selected Poems (1990) and A Hot January (1999); five books of fiction, including The Burning Time (2006); and numerous nonfiction works, including Saturday's Child: A Memoir (2001) and such works on feminism as The Anatomy of Freedom: Feminism, Physics, and Global Politics (1982), The Demon Lover: The Roots of Terrorism (1989) and her anthologies Sisterhood Is Global: The International Women's Movement Anthology (1984) and Sisterhood Is Forever: The Women's Anthology for a New Millennium (2003).
