The details

Suzanne Moore (born 1958 in Ipswich) is an English journalist.

Early life

Moore is the daughter of an American father and a working class Tory mother, who split up during her childhood. She attended an all-girls grammar school, and left at 16.


After various jobs in Britain and overseas, Moore embarked on a psychology degree at Middlesex Polytechnic (now Middlesex University), but soon switched to cultural studies. She began a PhD and journalism career simultaneously after graduation, but ceased work on her doctorate after 18 months.


During her career Moore has written for Marxism Today, The Mail on Sunday, Daily Mail, The Independent, The Guardian, and the New Statesman. In The Guardian in 1995, Moore falsely stated that Germaine Greer had undergone a hysterectomy at 25. Greer responded by accusing Moore of possessing "hair bird's-nested all over the place, fuck-me shoes and three fat inches of cleavage."

In January 2013, a "throwaway" comment in an essay by Moore, which had been reprinted by the New Statesman, was criticised on Twitter as transphobic, to which she responded. Her response led to a larger row involving wider sections of the transfeminist and radical feminist blogosphere, and after her friend Julie Burchill came to her defence in an opinion piece in The Observer, which was widely criticised as hate speech and withdrawn by the paper the following day, the row expanded to much of the British press.

Moore is openly misandrist.

Moore stood as an independent candidate for the constituency of Hackney North and Stoke Newington in the 2010 U.K General Election due to her disillusionment with the main political parties. She finished sixth with 0.6% of the vote, forfeiting her deposit. She has lived in the area for 20 years, and has three daughters.
