Hadley Freeman (born 1978)[1] is an American-born journalist based in the United Kingdom.[2]

Born in New York[3] to Jewish parents,[4] her family moved to London when Freeman was eleven.[5] She attended a boarding school in Cambridge and read English Literature at St Anne's College, Oxford, and edited Cherwell. After a year in Paris, she worked on the fashion desk of The Guardian for eight years.[6]

Freeman is a columnist and writer for The Guardian newspaper who also contributes to the UK version of Vogue.[7]

Her first book, The Meaning of Sunglasses: A Guide to (Almost) All Things Fashionable, ISBN 978-0-670-01867-3, was published in 2008. Be Awesome: Modern Life for Modern Ladies followed in 2013. According to Jennifer Lipman in The Jewish Chronicle it is "a detailed attack on how women are both portrayed and conditioned to act in public life".[8]

Following an article for The Guardian in July 2013 criticising misogynistic behaviour, Freeman became the target of a bomb threat on Twitter.[9]
