About the Author

Ann Snitow is Associate Professor of Literature and Gender Studies at Lang College, The New School, in New York City. A longtime activist, Snitow has cofounded The Network of East-West Women, No More Nice Girls, and New York Radical Feminists. She has written for The Village Voice, The Nation, The Women's Review of Books, Dissent, and many other publications, and is coeditor of Powers of Desire: The Politics of Sexuality and The Feminist Memoir Project: Voices from Women's Liberation.


"Snitow's work has always been very readable. Her prose has that luminous fluency that comes only after a writer has been steeped in decades of rigorous reading, writing and activism. These essays repeatedly emphasise how important her students are to her. ... For third- and fourth-wave feminist readers, The Feminism of Uncertainty will be both an introduction to Snitow's philosophy and a valuable reminder not to reinvent the feminist wheel."-- (09/17/2015)
"Ann Snitow is a hero of late twentieth-century radicalism, in its many guises. . . . [A] valuable resource for the ambitious future scholar/activist digging into feminism's past. . . . The Feminism of Uncertainty shines brightest when Snitow's uncertainty politics clash with the realities of action (and for Snitow, thinking, reading, and speaking are all actions)."

"At a time when the field is cleaved with irreconcilable differences between earlier epistemologies of feminisms and emergent perspectives, this book fills a major gap as it cuts across divides and speaks across eras and ideologies."--Basuli Deb"Socialism and Democracy" (06/30/2017)
