Katie Orenstein, Founder and CEO of the OpEd Project, writes and speaks frequently about the intersection of media and mythology — what we think is fact or fiction and how that shapes our ideas about politics, culture, and history. She is the author of Little Red Riding Hood Uncloaked: Sex, Morality, and the Evolution of a Fairy Tale. Katie has worked around the world, particularly in Haiti, where she reported and consulted with the United Nations and worked with human rights lawyers to assist victims of military and paramilitary violence in seeking justice. She is a recipient of the Diana P. Scott Integrity in Action Award, and a fellowship from Echoing Green, which selected the OpEd Project as one of the “most innovative social enterprises worldwide”, out of 1,500 applicants. She holds a BA from Harvard University and an MA from the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University.
