Amy Richards
From "Ask Amy", author of Manifesta

Amy is a writer, activist, and research and organizational consultant. She has been described as both the Gloria Steinem of her generation and a Martha Stewart wannabe, and it's this unique and varied perspective that makes Amy's work accessible and inspiring to an array of audiences. In 1995, Who Cares Magazine chose her as one of twenty-five Young Visionaries and in 1997 Ms. magazine profiled her in "21 for the 21st: Leaders for the Next Century."

Amy's work with young women is most visible through her work with the Third Wave Foundation, an organization she co-founded and of which she currently serves on the executive committee. Third Wave is the first and only national organization working with young women between the ages of 15 and 30.

Amy is also the person behind "Ask Amy," an online activist advice column located at www.feminist.com.
