Mimi Zieman is a board-certified OB/GYN, author, speaker, and reproductive rights activist. She was a founding member of the scientific Society of Family Planning and served as Chief Medical Officer of Planned Parenthood Southeast. She received the Georgia 2019 “Women Who Dare” award from the National Council of Jewish Women, where she currently chairs the reproductive justice committee. She has lectured nationally and internationally for professional medical organizations and other groups, and has been interviewed by media outlets including CNN, Fox News, Georgia Week in Review, The Atlanta Journal Constitution, Chicago Tribune, Cosmopolitan, Brides, Redbook, Glamour, Fitness, Esquire, and Good Day Atlanta. Zieman has treated frozen limbs on the highest mountain, delivered triplets near the world’s deepest ocean trench, tap danced in Broadway studios, and has been a suburban mom of three—all experiences that have prepared her for unexpected challenges. Her memoir, TAP DANCING ON EVEREST, is inspired by her outrageous pioneering Everest expedition, where she served as the team’s doctor when she was a young medical student. Her writing has appeared in Ms. Magazine, NBC News THINK, The Atlanta Journal Constitution, The Sun, and the Atlanta Jewish Times. Zieman has co-authored sixteen editions of Managing Contraception. Most recently, she wrote and produced a play, The Post-Roe Monologues, which was performed in August 2022 and will be performed in October as a fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee. Zieman lives in Atlanta, Georgia.
