50 Years of Ms. Magazine in Person

Please join us at Odyssey Bookshop on Wednesday, September 27 at 7 PM 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. contributors Carrie Baker, Lenore Palladino and Jackson Katz about 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.
