Suzannah Weiss is a freelance writer and editor who currently serves as an editor for Complex and a regular contributor to Vice, Teen Vogue, Bustle, Glamour, Playboy, New York Magazine, and more. She frequently discusses gender, body image, and social justice on radio shows and podcasts. Her essays on such topics have been published in several books. She has edited for Broadly and several bestselling authors and ghostwritten for well-known CEOs. She also works as a content marketer and career coach. Whoopi Goldberg once cited one of her articles on The View in a debate over whether asking for what you want in bed is a feminist act. (She thinks it is.)

Her background in writing, editing, marketing, and communications ranges from tech startups to academic journals. Before starting her freelance career, she served as Assistant Editor for Footnote, a site that translates academic research for mainstream audiences, Editorial Assistant for the academic journal Differences: A Journal of Feminist Cultural Studies, Content Specialist for the technology startup WibiData, and Content Writer for the technology-focused PR firm Coderella.
