Joan Kennedy Taylor, RIP


The libertarian feminist Joan Kennedy Taylor, whose books include Reclaiming the Mainstream and What to Do When You Don't Want to Call the Cops—and who played a substantial role in shepherding Charles Murray's Losing Ground to completion—has died of cancer. I never knew her, but I admired her work, which appeared in Reason among other venues; I also appreciated her role as an editor of one of the best libertarian magazines of the '70s, Libertarian Review. Several of her articles are archived here.
