Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Paula Kassell, author of Taking Women in New Directions, was the founder, editor and driving force behind the national feminist newspaper New Directions for Women, which was published from 1972 through 1993. Her key articles, reprinted in her new book, recorded milestones reached and barriers broken as American women claimed rights previously denied to them. Now 91 years old, Kassell compiled the book because many young women today are unaware of the struggles their foremothers waged to achieve a measure of equality contemporary women take for granted. Paula is founder of the Morris County Chapter of the National Organization for Women; vice president of the Women s Institute for Freedom of the Press; listed in Who's Who of American Women, World Who s Who of Women, and World Who's Who of the World; and the recipient of numerous awards for her activism and advocacy, including the Veteran Feminists of America medal for continual activism in the feminist movement since the early 1970s and the Millicent Carey McIntosh Feminism Award from Barnard College of Columbia University; and she was named as one of the "New Jersey Women Making History" by the NOW New Jersey Foundation.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Taking Women in New Directions: Stories from the Second Wave of the Women's Movement is an anthology of articles written by author Paula Kassell for the national feminist newspaper "New Directions for Women", which was published from 1972 to 1993. "New Directions for Women" was notable for its calls for affirmative action in the workplace, for women to get involved in all aspects of politics (from voting to campaign work to running for office). Kassell's articles, and some accompanying black-and-white photographs, are reproduced with the same appearance they once had within the paper itself. Taking Women in New Directions is a vital piece of America's history, chronicling milestones, changes, and even the occasional lapse in the progress of women's rights in America. An invaluable contribution to women's studies shelves, especially those of college libraries, Taking Women in New Directions is highly recommended.
