Sara’s essays and articles have been featured in outlets such as the New York Times, Harper’s Bazaar, Glamour, Refinery29, and elsewhere. She’s a frequent contributor to the Washington Post, where her 2018 essay about talking to her daughter about beauty went viral. She’s also a frequent contributor to InStyle, where she most recently struck a chord with mothers shouldering the bulk of childcare and domestic work during the pandemic. For Glamour, she tackled the phenomenon of “the hot mom,” revealing the particularly insidious ways patriarchy targets mothers and perpetuates internalized misogyny and body issues. And for WBUR’s Cognoscenti column, her essay about Meghan Markle and postpartum depression was one of the site’s ten most-read pieces of 2019.
Most recently, she has drawn attention for her momfluencer-centric pieces. For Romper, she reviewed a novel about momfluencer culture, and wrote a piece about how performing motherhood online is fraught for so many of us. For Refinery29, she wrote about the intersection between MLMs and momfluencers. And for Harper’s Bazaar, she wrote a piece about the cultishness of wellness momfluencers, and another about her own love/hate relationship with momfluencers.
