Leslie Bennetts is a veteran journalist who began her newspaper career at The Philadelphia Bulletin, where she won many awards for writing and reporting, and then spent ten years as a reporter at The New York Times. The first woman ever to cover a presidential campaign for The Times, she also covered metropolitan news, City Hall, Style and cultural news in addition to national politics. Bennetts left The Times for Vanity Fair, where she spent 24 years as a contributing editor and wrote many of the magazine’s best-known movie star cover stories as well as investigative articles on subjects ranging from priest pedophilia to the nation’s war against drugs. At the beginning of her career, she was also a reporter for The Washington Star, a radio host and television correspondent in Philadelphia, the executive editor of Popular Dogs Magazine, and editor of a music trade magazine. Bennetts started covering so-called “women’s issues” in the 1970s and has continued to write about women, marriage, and families ever since.Read more Read less
