Women: Portraits 1960-2000—with a timely new jacket—celebrates the movers, shakers, and groundbreakers of our times. “These were the noteworthy women of the ‘60s and into the first years of the 21st century: achievers, trailblazers, glass-ceiling breakers, and all individuals,” writes author Susan Wood, one of the earliest and most successful professional photographers to break into a world long dominated by men. Women: Portraits 1960-2000 is a compilation of portraits taken by American photographer Susan Wood of some of the most prominent and influential women of the 20th century. Her notable subjects include Diane von Furstenberg, Martha Stewart, Nora Ephron, Alice Waters, Jayne Mansfield, and Gloria Vanderbilt among many others.
Susan Wood’s work represents a number of milestones in American photography over a period of more than 30 years. She was involved with the original “Mad Men” of Madison Avenue and during that time won several Clios, the most sought-after award in advertising. Mademoiselle chose her as one of their top Ten Women of the Year and her work appeared in many other periodicals including Vogue, Life, Look, Harper’s Bazaar, and New York Magazine. Susan Wood was a founding member of the Women’s Forum and was involved in the fight for women’s rights and equality in the 1960s and 1970s. She was also friends with many of the vanguard of the feminist movement including Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem.
