The Ann Snitow Prize recognizes a person of extraordinary vision, originality, generosity, and accomplishment who is currently engaged in work that combines feminist intellectual and/or artistic pursuits with social justice activism. It is named after Ann Barr Snitow (1943-2019), a much-loved feminist writer, political activist, and teacher who was a founding member of No More Nice Girls and the Network of East-West Women. The past winners are Mariame Kaba, Sarah Schulman, and Premilla Nadasen.
“For better and worse, feminism is not a consistent ideology promising knowable ends or a panacea applicable in all situations,” wrote Ann in The Feminism of Uncertainty. “I believe feminism has great longevity, but only if it is a continuous shape-changer, capable of responding to new conditions and expectations.”
