Maureen Dowd is recipient of the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for distinguished commentary and a best-selling author.

Known for her witty, incisive and often acerbic portraits of the powerful, Dowd began her journalism career in 1974 as an editorial assistant for The Washington Star, where she later became a sports columnist, metropolitan reporter and feature writer. When The Star closed, she went to TIME magazine. She joined The New York Times as a metropolitan reporter in 1983, went on to serve as a correspondent in the paper's Washington bureau in 1986, and became a columnist on The Times Op-Ed page in 1995; her column appears Sundays. In 2014, she also became a writer for The Times Magazine.

Dowd has covered seven presidential campaigns, served as The Times' White House correspondent, and written "On Washington," a column for The Times Magazine. She was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for national reporting in 1992 and was named one of Glamour's Women of the Year for 1996.

In her most recent book, The Year of Voting Dangerously: The Derangement of American Politics (Grand Central Publishing, 2016), Dowd "traces the psychologies and pathologies in one of the nastiest and most significant battles of the sexes ever," the 2016 presidential campaign.

In addition to The New York Times, Dowd has written for GQ, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, The New Republic, Mademoiselle and Sports Illustrated, among other publications.
