Meredith Tax: Feminist Author, Historian, and Activist

From a New York Times obit by Penelope Green headlined “Meredith Tax, Feminist Author, Historian, and Activist, Dies at 80”:

Meredith Tax, a second-wave feminist and author whose scholarship on labor movements informed her own class-conscious activism, died in Teaneck, N.J.

Ms. Tax was in London studying English literature on a fellowship when the Vietnam War escalated, and she and her roommate, Ann Barr Snitow, who would go on to help found the organization New York Radical Feminists, threw themselves into the antiwar movement.
