DescriptionA celebration of Ms.--the most startling, most audacious, most norm-breaking of the magazine's groundbreaking pieces on women, men, politics (sexual and otherwise), marriage, family, education, work, motherhood, reproductive rights, as well as the best of the magazine's fiction, poetry, and letters. For the past five decades Ms. has been the nation's most influential source of feminist ideas, and remains at the forefront of feminism today, affecting thought and culture with a younger than ever readership (ages 16-20!).
Ms. was the first U.S. magazine to:
- feature prominent American women demanding the repeal of laws that criminalized abortion
- explain and advocate for the Equal Rights Amendment
- rate presidential candidates on women's issues
- feature domestic violence and sexual harassment on its cover, long before either were widely understood or acknowledged
- commission and publish a national study on date rape
Here are essays, profiles, conversations with and features by: Alice Walker, Cynthia Enloe, Pauli Murray, Nancy Pelosi, bell hooks, Billie Jean King, Eleanor Holmes Norton, Allison Bechdel, Brittney Cooper and Joy Harjo, as well as fiction and poetry by Toni Morrison, Audre Lorde, Joyce Carol Oates, Adrienne Rich, Rita Dove, and Sharon Olds, among many others.
