Short biography
Ann Jones has spent the better part of her life traveling at home and abroad and speaking up for people—especially women—who have trouble making their voices heard. She has been a lifelong activist for civil rights, women’s rights, and peace. She grew up and went to school mostly in Wisconsin and received a PhD in literature and history from the University in 1970. At her first real job, teaching at a black college in the south, she found students getting shortchanged and wrote her first book of advocacy, Uncle Tom’s Campus (1973). She followed with a series of books about women and violence beginning with Women Who Kill (1980) and culminating in Next Time, She’ll Be Dead. She also worked at day jobs she loved, sometimes teaching writing and women’s studies as a university professor, and sometimes traveling as an international journalist and photographer.
