Joyce Diane Brothers was an American psychologist, television personality, and columnist. She first became famous in 1955 for winning the top prize on the American game show The $64,000 Question, being the only woman to do so. Her fame from the game show allowed her to go on to host various advice columns and television shows, which established her as a pioneer in the field of "pop (popular) psychology". She is often credited as being the first to normalize psychological concepts to the American mainstream. The syndicated columns she hosted were featured in both newspapers and magazines, including a monthly column Good Housekeeping, in which she contributed for nearly 40 years As Brothers quickly became the "face of psychology" for American audiences, she often appeared in various television roles, usually as herself. From the 1970s onward, she also began to accept roles portraying fictional characters which were often self-parodies of her "woman psychologist" persona, which the public came to know her for. She is noted for working continuously for five decades across various genres. Brothers was recognized as a result of her strong female lead in the psychological field with awards like Professional Woman of the Year, and Business and Professional Women's Club despite the struggles to de-stigmatize psychology in television facing the obstacle of the culture towards women.
