Stephanie Ebbert



Stephanie Ebbert is an investigative reporter for the Boston Globe, where she has worked as a staff reporter since 1997. With a focus on government and politics, she documented many of Massachusetts’ most consequential campaigns of the past two decades. During the Trump era, she shifted to covering gender issues, tracking the tumultuous societal changes that produced the Women’s March, the #MeToo movement, and the new culture war over transgender rights. She covered Massachusetts’ first-in-the-nation statewide voter referendum on transgender rights and the drama that unfolded in one community where a principal came out as transgender. She unearthed the stories of the forgotten women who were jailed on prostitution charges after the men targeted for patronizing their Florida spa went free. Her coverage of a state law that was allowing veterans to skirt prosecution on domestic violence charges prompted the Legislature to rewrite the law. And she told the stories of women whose allegations of sexual assault inside the Everett Public Schools led the former superintendent to register as a sex offender. Her column on women’s issues, called “What She Said,” offered deeper analysis on the headlines, and in 2022, she launched a newsletter called “Beyond Roe” that tracked the rapid changes following the Supreme Court’s reversal of constitutional protections for abortion rights. A native of Shillington, Pennsylvania, Stephanie graduated from University of Delaware and previously worked for the Reading Eagle-Times, the Harrisburg Patriot-News, and Prevention magazine.
