About Christine Dinsmore

Christine Dinsmore is an award-winning reporter who writes about women, children, human rights and international affairs. She is a featured political columnist for InsideOut.

Her professional life has spanned several fields including education, psychology and journalism. A commitment to equality and justice is the connective tissue of her work.

She has written about gay and lesbian homeless teenagers, job discrimination against women diagnosed with breast cancer and the questionable ethics of paying street kids to be HIV-tested in a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention research project. She received a Project Censored Award for exposing the systematic loss of women’s reproductive rights through Catholic and secular hospital mergers.

Dinsmore is undeterred by risks as demonstrated by her leaving full-time employment in print journalism to pursue the uncertainty of the free-lance world. She also blindly attempts humor in her writing about progressive politics.

In her current incarnation as a freelancer, she regularly ghostwrites and edits for the United Nations Children’s Fund and other United Nation agencies. For UNICEF, she has written several of its flagship publications, including The State of the World’s Children 2001, the web version of The State of the World’s Children 2004, and the agency’s Annual Report 2003, 2006, 2007 and 2008. Dinsmore writes op-eds and articles for its executive director and edits agency reports, booklets, web pages and advocacy literature.

Prior to her journalism career, Dinsmore, who has a Ph.D. in psychology, was a psychotherapist in private practice, specializing in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. She is the author of From Surviving to Thriving: Incest, Feminism and Recovery.

Dinsmore lives in Manhattan and Woodstock, New York.
