In 1993, her concern with child abuse led her to co-produce an Emmy Award–winning TV documentary for HBO, Multiple Personalities: The Search for Deadly Memories. She and Amy Richards co-produced a series of eight documentaries on violence against women around the world for VICELAND in 2016.
In 2013, President Obama awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor. In 2019, she received the Freedom Award from the National Civil Rights Museum.

Fortune Magazine has announced Emily Ramshaw, The 19th’s co-founder and CEO, as one of the "40 Under 40 in Media & Entertainment" alongside Dan Levy, Beyoncé, Greta Gerwig, Ronan Farrow, and Trevor Noah. Ramshaw was until recently the editor-in-chief of The Texas Tribune, a Peabody Award-winning, 10-year-old news startup that boasts the largest statehouse bureau in the nation, powers the pages of newspapers across Texas and the nation, and is considered the gold standard for sustainability in local news. She is also the youngest person ever to be named to the board of the Pulitzer Prize, where she is serving a nine-year term.
In addition to overseeing more than 60 Tribune employees, a $10 million budget and 50+ live events annually, Ramshaw has spoken both nationally and internationally about the Tribune’s business model, deemed “the nonprofit news sector’s runaway success.”
Before helping to found the Tribune a decade ago, Ramshaw was an award-winning investigative reporter at The Dallas Morning News, where she broke national stories about sexual abuse inside Texas’ youth lock-ups, reported from inside a West Texas polygamist compound and uncovered “fight clubs” at state institutions for people with disabilities.
A native of Washington, D.C., Ramshaw graduated from Northwestern University in 2003 with dual degrees in journalism and American history.
