Ann Snitow Died on August 10, after Finishing her Sixth Book

In “Remembering Ann Snitow, the Feminist Activist Who Embraced Uncertainty,” Alix Kates Shulman presents the portrait of the writer, teacher, and unstoppable organizer who was “a founding member of one crucial radical feminist group after another.”

A founding member of New York Radical Feminists, Snitow also co-founded CARASA (Committee for Abortion Rights and Against Sterilization Abuse), No More Nice Girls (a feminist street theater group), FACT (Feminist Anti-Censorship Taskforce), and Take Back the Future (a feminist anti-war action group). She also founded women’s studies programs at Rutgers University in 1972 and gender studies programs at The New School in 1993 and 2010.

Her writings include Powers of Desire: The Politics of Sexuality (1983), The Feminist Memoir Project (1998), The Feminism of Uncertainty (2015), and her upcoming final book, Visitors (due to be published in spring 2020).
