Her Way: Young Women Remake the Sexual Revolution

By Paula Kamen | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

During the long and always challenging journey of researching and writing this book, I have been thankful for the many allies along the way. Making this book possible were all the women interviewed, my family, Dr. Ellen Berry, Eric Zinner, and the dedicated editorial staff at NYU Press. John K. Wilson helped in all steps of this process. Josh Kilroy provided much appreciated editorial support. My mother also regularly went above and beyond the call of duty, regularly giving me plastic grocery bags stuffed with articles (all having something to do with sex) that she had clipped from the halfdozen newspapers she regularly reads.

Helping with research, interview contacts, editorial suggestions (or just morale) were both Cecilias, Daisy Hernandez, Bridget Brown, Marny Requa, Steve Rhodes, Felicia Kornbluh, Kristen Walsh, Jennifer Morris and friends, Clare Sullivan and family, Ellen Frank, Lisa Davis, Lisa Ormerod, Mary McCain, Pam Sourelis, Danny Postel, Melissa Sterne, Ann McCaffrey, Monica Sohn, Jason Schultz, Victoria Stagg Elliott, Anna Minkov, Elizabeth Austin, Amy Keller, Adrienne Kneeland and Chris Jackiw, and Paul and Stephanie Creamer. (Apologies to the roommates included in this group for the constant clutter from newspapers and magazines.) I also thank some of my most helpful interview sources, including Ilsa Lottes, Sarah Weddington, Florynce Kennedy, Judy Norsigian, Barbara Seaman, and the staff of the University Settlement of New York City. Helping me with transcription were Deidre Fuller, Becky Kamen, Tim Hegeman, and Transcription Professionals. Thanks to Kate Kirtz for coining the word superrat by accident over conversation.

For lodging and local contacts in various cities, I thank: Iris Chang and Brett Douglas, Jeanne Kim, Stephanie Wall, Laurel Carpenter, Mecca Carpenter and family, Jenai Lane, Dawn King and family, Amy Tague, Susan Hays, Dean Fiala, Mary Edwards, Pat Longoria and Mason Peck, and Ken and Becky Kurson.

I greatly appreciate the research support of the Northwestern University Gender Studies Program, including the gracious Marena McPherson, Cathy Coppolillo, Rae Moses, and Fran Paden. I would also like to thank the Puffin Foundation and the City of Chicago CAPS program for grants in 1994.

Over the years, material from this book has appeared in different incarnations in other publications. The seeds were planted in a 1992 essay,
