Young is the author of two books, including Ceasefire!: Why Women and Men Must Join Forces to Achieve True Equality. She also contributed the essay, “Keeping Women Weak,” to Next: Young American Writers on the New Generation (Eric Liu, ed.). W. W. Norton & Co., 1994. As a research associate at the Cato Institute, she co-authored, with Michael Weiss, Esq., the 1996 policy analysis, “Feminist Jurisprudence: Equal Rights or Neo-Paternalism?”
Young’s television appearances have included The Today Show (NBC); Crier & Company, Inside Business (CNN); This is America!, To the Contrary, and Uncommon Knowledge (PBS); Washington Journal (C-Span); Judith Regan Tonight and The O’Reilly Factor (Fox News Channel).
Young explains “I am a strong believer in individual rights and limited government. I believe in judging people as individuals, not on the basis of membership in a group. I believe that reality trumps ideology, left or right. I believe Western democracy, flawed through it is, is worth defending. Perhaps most important, I believe that it should be possible for honest and intelligent people to disagree on political issues and respect each other.”
