Brigid Schulte

  • Bio

    Brigid Schulte writes about work-life issues and poverty, seeking to understand what it takes to live The Good Life across race, class and gender. Schulte is also a regular contributor to the She The People blog and has written for Style, Outlook, the Washington Post magazine, and other outlets.

    Brigid grew up in Oregon, got her start in newspapers at the Casper Star-Tribune in Wyoming, and over the years has covered national politics, the Pentagon, public health, education, the environment, and just about everything in between as an enterprise and narrative writer.

    After a time-use researcher told her she had 30 hours of leisure time a week, she wound up writing a book in search of it: Overwhelmed: Work, Love and Play When No One Has the Time.
