Joan Kennedy Taylor born December 21 (1926)

21 Dec

Joan Kennedy Taylor was a student and fan of Ayn Rand who met with Rand when Joan edited the young Manhattan Republican club’s magazine Persuasion, about which Rand advised her, telling her that the name for her political philosophy was “libertarianism,” back before Ayn Rand felt the need to separate herself from Murray Rothbard and others and reject the use of the term (always an individual, Ayn Rand, if alive today, would be the only person NOT trying to call herself a libertarian).  Ms. Taylor helped start the Association of Libertarian Feminists and was a co-editor of Libertarian Review with Victoria Varga and the late Roy Childs Jr.
