Barbara Winslow is a historian teaching in the School of Education and the Women's Studies Program. She attended Antioch College in the 1960s and has never forgotten the last valedictory address of its first president, Horace Mann: "Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity." Her research focuses on the intersection of gender, class, race and sexuality on women in social protest movements. Her first book, Sylvia Pankhurst: Sexual Politics and Political Activism, tells the story of an important suffragette, peace campaigner, anti-colonialist, anti-fascist, international socialist and feminist. She is presently writing a history of the women's liberation movement in Seattle, and she is co-authoring and editing Clio in the Classroom: Teaching U.S. Women's History. Winslow is the project director of the Shirley Chisholm Project of Brooklyn Women's Activism 1945 to the Present.
