Melissa McEwan's Biography

Melissa McEwan is the founder and editor of the award-winning political and cultural group blog Shakesville, a founding member of the Big Brass Blog, and a contributor to The Guardian's Comment is Free and AlterNet. Melissa graduated from Loyola University Chicago with degrees in Sociology and Cultural Anthropology, with an emphasis on the political marginalization of gender-based groups. An active feminist and LGBTQ advocate, she has worked as a concept development and brand consultant and now writes full-time.

She lives just outside Chicago with two cats and a Scotsman, with whom she shares a love of all things geekdom, from Lord of the Rings to Lost. When she's not blogging, she can usually be found at her piano or dancing like no one is watching to a Smiths' tune.
