American psychiatrist, professor and author of many books stemming from her interest in women's psychology. Her books include "Toward a New Psychology of Women," released in 1976.

As a young toddler she contracted polio that resulted in wearing braces and two surgeries before she reached her teens. Her family was poor and the Great Depression struck. She attributes her interest in women to the role her mother and her nurses played in getting her into Hunter College High School. Her track record as a good student allowed her to obtain a scholarship to Sarah Lawrence College from which she graduated in 1948. She earned her MD from Columbia University in 1952 and subsequently became a certified Psychiatrist and Psychoanalyst.

Betty Friedan's book, "the Feminie Mystique" and the women's movement reinforced her interest in women's psychology. She has since written many books, contributed to scholarly works, led workshops and training in her specialty area. In 1986 she assumed the position of Director of the Elizabeth Stone Center for Developmental Services and Studies in 1986 at Wellesley College. In 1995 she established the Jean Baker Miller Training Institute, part of the Stone Center.

She and her husband have two sons.
