Libertarian History/Philosophy

Women's History Month for Libertarians

|

At Cato's website is a celebration of the three women who can fairly be credited with launching the modern American libertarian movement, Ayn Rand, Isabel Paterson, and Rose Wilder Lane.

You might also want to see my May 2005 Reason magazine essay on Paterson, which discusses her relationship with Rand and Lane at length as well.

Also, you certainly want to see my book on the history of the American libertarian movement, which much much more on all three women, Radicals for Capitalism: A Freewheeling History of the Modern American Libertarian Movement.
