The Feminist Fight Forward: Lessons from 50 YEARS OF Ms.

50 Years of Ms. anthology celebration event details for October 10th at 7pm

Please join us at Vroman’s Bookstore to celebrate the extraordinary new anthology 50 YEARS OF Ms.: THE BEST OF THE PATHFINDING MAGAZINE THAT IGNITED A REVOLUTION (Knopf, Sept. 2023) and engage in critical conversation – with Ms. Consulting digital editor Carmen Rios, author and Ms. contributor Lisa Niver, and Nayereh Tohidi, a member of the Ms. committee of scholars. We’ll explore what the future of feminism and movement journalism demands: vision that is bold, imaginative and collaborative. 

50 YEARS OF Ms. is a remarkable collection – five decades of the magazine’s most startling, audacious, and norm-breaking pieces. Filled with iconic covers, photos, and letters to Ms., it features a foreword from Gloria Steinem and contributions by bell hooks, Alice Walker, Pauli Murray, Eleanor Smeal, Billie Jean King, Eleanor Holmes Norton, Allison Bechdel, Brittney Cooper, Joy Harjo, Toni Morrison, Audre Lorde, Adrienne Rich, Rita Dove and many more. 

Ms. remains a trusted feminist source for news, analysis and commentary, and is more critical than ever as the fights for women’s rights and for democracy face new challenges. The book is as much a reflection of the past 50 years as it is a roadmap for the path forward.
