Barbara Ehrenreich

The most recent update was 8-11-00. I have tendonitis, so it hasn't been updated as frequently as I'd like. There is a lot of work to do. Right now, I'm adding new links and fixing broken ones. A better structure will come later.

She has a piece,Vote Nader, in the Nation (8-21-00)

I was inspired to do an update because I mentioned her in an item I did on Howard Zinn for Zinn & Ehrenreich had just joined the Progressive as columnists. Links to her columns which are online are included below. She also is writing a monthly column for In These Times. Unfortunately, they do not archive her columns. Doing it for Ourselves is online at Alternet (11-28-99). Both publications are well worth subscribing to.

Barbara Ehrenreich is a writer, activist and novelist who appears in publications ranging from the Mother Jones to Z to Time. She is an honorary chair of DSA. I've collected what writing I could find of hers which is available on the web.

Alternet has a conversation with Ehrenreich and Juliette Beck of Global Exchange on the IMF protests. (4-27-00)

Ehrenreich had the cover story in the April 2000 issue of Harpers, Maid to Order: The politics of other women's work. It isn't online, but a piece in Slate attacking it is.
