Rosalind Wiseman has had only one job since she graduated from college - to help communities shift the way we think about children and teens' emotional and physical well-being. As a teacher, thought leader, author, and media spokesperson on bullying, ethical leadership, the use of social media, and media literacy, she is in constant dialogue and collaboration with educators, parents, children, and teens.
Most famously, Rosalind is the author of Queen Bees and Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends, and the New Realities of Girl World - the groundbreaking, best-selling book that was the basis for the movie Mean Girls. The fully revised third edition was published in July 2016.
Rosalind's other publications include Masterminds and Wingmen: Helping Our Boys Cope With Schoolyard Power, Locker-Room Tests, Girlfriends, and the New Rules of Boy World, which was awarded Best Parenting Book by Books for a Better Life in 2014. She is also a regular curriculum contributor to the Anti-Defamation League.
From teaching in the classroom to large keynote presentations, each year Rosalind works with tens of thousands of students, educators, parents, counselors, coaches, and administrators to create communities based on the belief that each person has a responsibility to treat themselves and others with dignity. Rosalind has presented at the White House, the American School Counselor Association, South by Southwest, the Game Developers Conference, the International Boys' Schools Coalition, the American Association of School Administrators, and countless schools throughout the United States and abroad. She is an advisor to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
A native of Washington, D.C., she currently lives in Colorado with her husband and two sons.
