Author Biography
(Contribution by)
Rosalyn Fraad Baxandall was born in Manhattan, New York on June 12, 1939. She received a bachelor's degree in French from the University of Wisconsin in 1961 and a master's degree from the School of Social Work at Columbia University in 1963.

She began working for the Mobilization for Youth and took part in the women's movement. She picketed the 1968 Miss America pageant in Atlantic City and had a prominent role in the abortion speakout in the West Village in 1969. In 1971, she began teaching in the American studies department at the State University of New York at Old Westbury. She later served as head of the department. After retiring from SUNY in 2012, she taught in the labor studies program of the City University of New York and at the Bayview Correctional Facility.

She along with Linda Gordon and Susan Reverby assembled primary documents that offered a sweeping history of women and labor. Their book, America's Working Women: A Documentary History, 1600 to the Present, was published in 1976. Her other books include Technology, the Labor Process and the Working Class: A Collection of Essays, Words on Fire: The Life and Writing of Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, Dear Sisters: Dispatches from the Women's Liberation Movement, and Picture Windows: How the Suburbs Happened written with Elizabeth Ewen. She died from kidney cancer on October 13, 2015 at the age of 76.
