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.

For the past five decades Ms. has been the nation’s most influential source of feminist ideas, and it remains at the forefront of feminism today, affecting thought and culture with a younger-than-ever readership (ages 16-20!).

KATHERINE (KATHY) SPILLAR is the Executive Editor of Ms. and editor of and contributor to 50 Years of Ms: The Best of the Pathfinding Magazine that Ignited a Revolution. Kathy is also the Executive Director of Feminist Majority Foundation and Feminist Majority, national organizations working for women’s equality, empowerment and non-violence; one of the founders, she has been a driving force in executing the organizations’ diverse programs securing women’s rights both domestically and globally since its inception in 1987.

CAMILLE HAHN is the managing editor of Ms.—and has also served as its research editor, associate editor, features editor, copy editor and proofreader in her 15-plus years with the magazine. Previously, she worked as an associate editor at Bon Appétit.

DR. NICOLE M. GUIDOTTI-HERNÁNDEZ is a Ms. contributor and a member of the Ms. Committee of Scholars. She is the inaugural executive director of the Mills Institute at Northeastern University’s Oakland campus and author of Unspeakable Violence: Remapping U.S. and Mexican National Imaginaries.
