The Guardian Hires Chelsea Manning
The Guardian‘s U.S. news wing announced on Tuesday that it has hired Chelsea Manning (formerly known as Bradley Manning) as a contributing opinion writer.
The Guardian‘s U.S. editor-in-chief Katharine Viner announced the news on Twitter, adding that Manning will write about “war, gender, freedom of information.”
Last December, Manning penned an essay for The Guardian alleging the government was denying her civil rights as a transgender woman.
