Lynn Povich ’65
AAVC Distinguished Achievement Award Recipient 2018
Award-winning journalist Lynn Povich has spent more than 40 years in the news business. She began her career as a secretary in the Paris Bureau of Newsweek magazine, rising to become a reporter and writer in New York City. In 1970, she was one of 46 women who filed sex discrimination charges against the magazine, which would not allow women to rise to staff writer or editor positions. Five years later, she was appointed the first woman Senior Editor in Newsweek’s history. Povich later wrote a book about the landmark case. The Good Girls Revolt, published in 2012, inspired the Amazon Prime series Good Girls Revolt, which aired in October 2016. Povich went on to become Editor-in-Chief
of Working Woman and, later, East Coast Managing Editor at MSNBC.com.
