Nona and Emma's Feminist Road Trip Begins in Chicago
More on the young feminist road trip I mentioned briskly in an earlier post. Twenty-three year old writer Nona Willis-Aronowitz (daughter of Ellen Willis, founder of Redstockings, Voice editor, and the New Yorker's first rock critic) is pairing up with Emma Bernstein (daughter of painter and art journal editor Susan Bee -- and niece of my mentor/friend Susan Bernstein) to document what "feminism" means to members of their generation, in words and images. Their book will map the future and acknowledge the past. I'm looking forward to doing whatever I can to help these ladies out - how much do I LOVE this project?!
