Encyclopedia of the Sixties
Today I am writing three entries for the Encyclopedia of the Sixties, published by ABC-Clio. The entries are for "bra burnings," the National Organization for Women (NOW) and Katherine Graham, publisher of the Washington Post - pictured above.
The Washington Post, and Ben Bradlee, are credited with transitioning the women's page into a style section. The truth is more complicated. For example, Carol Sutton had transformed her women's section of the Louisville Courier-Journal a year prior to the Post.
