Goldberg is the author of two books, the first being Kingdom Coming: The Rise of Christian Nationalism (Norton 2006), the second being The Means of Reproduction: Sex, Power, and the Future of the World (Penguin 2009) about "the global battle over women's rights". She is a former contributing writer at Salon.com. Her work has been published in the magazines The New Republic, Rolling Stone, and Glamour, and in The Guardian, The LA Times, and other newspapers.
On May 13, 2012, Goldberg caused a controversy when she appeared on MSNBC and called Ann Romney "insufferable" and derided Romney's phrase "crown of motherhood" which appeared in Romney's pre-Mother's Day op-ed in USA Today as "really kind of creepy" and compared this to how "authoritarian societies that give out like 'The Cross of Motherhood,' that give awards for big families. You know, Stalin did it, Hitler did it." Goldberg later called her comment a mistake, but declined to apologize to Mrs. Romney by saying, "So my apologies aren't for Ann Romney, but for everyone else. I'm truly sorry to have given the right a pretext for another tedious spasm of feigned outrage."
Goldberg is married to Matthew Ipcar, VP, Design and Strategy for Blue State Digital and former design director for the Obama-Biden Transition Team. They live in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, New York.
