<a href="http://www.alternet.org" rel="nofollow">AlterNet</a>'s Washington bureau chief

<a href="http://technorati.com/faves?sub=addfavbtn&add=http://huffingtonpost.com/adele-stan" rel="nofollow"></a> <br> <br> Adele M. Stan is the Washington bureau chief for <a href="http://www.alternet.org" rel="nofollow">AlterNet</a>, the progressive news and culture Web site. Stan has served as a columnist and blogger for <a href="http://www.prospect.org/cs/author?id=1227" rel="nofollow">The American Prospect Online</a> and as a featured essayist for The Guardian's <a href="http://www.guardian.co.uk/profile/adelestan" rel="nofollow">Comment Is Free</a> site. Stan's work has also appeared in <em>The New Republic</em>, the <em>Village Voice</em>, <em>The Nation</em>, <em>The Advocate</em>, Salon.com, the <em>Washington Blade</em> and <em>Mother Jones</em> magazine, as well as on the op-ed pages of the <em>New York Times</em>, the <em>Los Angeles Times</em>, the <em>San Francisco Chronicle</em> and the New York <em>Daily News</em>. She began her media career at <em>Ms.</em> magazine, where she served both on staff and as a contributing editor. <br> <br> Along the way, Stan developed expertise in covering the intersection of religion and politics, in addition to lifelong specialties in women's issues and pop culture. Her <em>Mother Jones</em> <a href="http://www.motherjones.com/news/feature/1995/11/stan.html" rel="nofollow">cover story</a> on the religious right is considered by many to be a definitive primer on the movement; a special 10,000-copy reprint sold out its print run. <br> <br> Those who graduated college with women's studies majors are familiar with Stan's book, <em>Debating Sexual Correctness</em>, in which the author details the porn wars, date rape controversy and theory on sexual harassment that helped define the modern feminist movement. <br> <br> Stan has also served as a contributing writer to <em>Mother Jones</em>, and Washington correspondent for <em>Working Woman.</em> <br> <br> Outside of the office, Stan indulges an array of interests, with music taking center stage. She is in the midst of planning a second career as a lounge-singing ukulele-player. <br> <br> <a href="http://www.alternet.org" rel="nofollow">http://www.alternet.org</a> <a href="http://www.alternet.org" rel="nofollow">http://www.alternet.org</a>
