Proud to be a feminist, women’s rights activist and loud voice for social change, CT NOW President Cindy Wolfe Boynton is an award-winning writer and editor whose background includes more than 15 years as a regular correspondent for The New York Times and nine years as editor of Better Health magazine. She is also the author of two books published in 2014 by The History Press, Remarkable Women of Hartford and Connecticut’s Witch Trails: The First Panic in the New World. Her one-woman plays Right Time to Say I Love You and Dear Prudence both made their premieres at New York City’s United Solo Theatre Festival, with Right Time continuing on for performances that took her to Brighton, England, and one of the largest theater festivals in the world. A lifelong Connecticut resident, Cindy is an English and communications instructor at the Yale School of Medicine and Housatonic Community College, and coordinator of the Writing and Oral Tradition Master’s Degree Program at The Graduate Institute. In 2014, she served as a fellow at the Wesleyan Writers Conference. Writing about inspiring, but often-forgotten, women from history–as well as teaching women today how they can use their stories to inspire and empower others–is a focus of her current work.
