Collection Overview

The Meredith Tax papers include materials from the activist organizations she was involved with, as well as drafts and manuscripts of her written work, some personal correspondence, teaching materials, and audio/visual materials. The largest group of materials documents Tax's long career as an activist, beginning with her involvement in Boston's Bread and Roses, a socialist-feminist collective through her continued work with Women's WORLD, a global free speech network Tax cofounded in 1994 to fight gender-based censorship. Other organizations Tax was involved in are also well documented in the collection including CARASA (Committee for Abortion Rights and Against Sterilization Abuse), PEN American Center Women's Committee, and International PEN Women's Writers Committee. Smaller amounts of material come from Tax's work with the October League, Chicago Women's Liberation Union, National Writers' Union and the West Side Community School, as well as other organizations. Tax's work as a writer, of books, both fiction and nonfiction, articles, essays, and speeches as well as songs, are represented in the Writings, Speeches, and Songs series. The Correspondence series includes both personal and professional correspondence. The Subject Files were created by Tax for research related to her activism and her writing.

Contents of the Collection

This series contains materials relating to the various activist organizations Tax has been a part of beginning in the 1960s through the first decade of the twentieth century. Those with the most extensive documentation are Bread and Roses, a Boston based socialist-feminist organization, CARASA (Committee for Abortion Rights and Against Sterilization Abuse), PEN American Center Women's Committee, International PEN Women's Writers Committee, Women's WORLD. Other organizations Tax was a part of and are documented in this series include the October League, the Chicago Women's Liberation Union, National Writers Union and the West Side Community School. Tax was a founding member of many of these organizations so material from the inception of these organizations is often included. Tax's work with both PEN American and International PEN focuses on gender-based censorship, and Women's WORLD is an organization she cofounded to continue that work at a global level. This series documents the activities, both internal and external, of these organizations including material such as board material, program files, conference files, correspondence, information on grants and fundraising activities, as well as research files related to the organizations' missions. Tax's original folder titles have been retained where possible.

Historical Note

Meredith Tax was born in Wisconsin on September 18, 1942. She was educated in the Milwaukee public school system and at Brandeis University, where she graduated magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa and with Woodrow Wilson and Fulbright fellowships. She then studied at the University of London where she became involved in the anti-war movement. Returning to the U.S. in 1968, she continued her anti-war activism and was one of the founding members of Boston's Bread and Roses collective, a socialist feminist group.

Her essay, "Woman and Her Mind: The Story of Daily Life" , (1970) is often considered a founding document of the woman's movement and is one of the first texts to discuss sexual harassment. Then moving to Chicago, she worked in factories and as a nurses aide and continued her activism in the Chicago Women's Liberation Union.

In 1976, she moved to New York, and was founding cochair of the Committee for Abortion Rights and Against Sterilization Abuse (CARASA), which helped start the Reproductive Rights National Network, of which she was a steering committee member. She also was a parent initiator of an alternative public elementary school in District 3 in New York.

Tax's writings include a history book, The Rising of the Women: Feminist Solidarity and Class Conflict (1980), two historical novels, Rivington Street (1982) and Union Square (1988), and a children's picture book, Families (1981).

In 1986, Tax and Grace Paley initiated the PEN American Center Women’s Committee and became its co-chairs; she later became founding Chair of International PEN’s Women Writers’ Committee and, in 1994, was founding President of Women’s WORLD, a global free speech network that fights gender-based censorship.
