Born in 1935 in New York City, Susan Brownmiller is a journalist and author perhaps best known for her book, Against Our Will: Men, Women, and Rape (1975). She attended Cornell University (1952-1954) and worked for Coronet magazine, the Albany Report, and Newsweek before resigning to aid the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee in its voter registration drive in Mississippi in 1964. She was also active in voter registration drives with the East Harlem Reform Democrats, where she ran for district leader. In the late 1960s she worked for a time in radio and TV; her book reviews, essays, and articles appeared regularly in the New York Times, Newsday, the New York Daily News, Vogue, the Nation, and the Village Voice, among others. Other books have included Shirley Chisholm: A Biography (1970), Femininity (1984), Waverly Place (1989), Seeing Vietnam: Encounters of the Road and Heart (1994), and In Our Time: Memoir of a Revolution (1999). Brownmiller was active in the women's liberation movement in the late 1960s and 1970s; she was a co-founder of the New York Radical Feminists. Her continuing interest in women's issues led her to help found Women Against Pornography in 1979.
