Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mary Jane McKeown Owen is a disability rights activist, philosopher, policy expert and writer who has lived and worked in Washington, D.C. since 1979. Owen was born in northern Illinois to Methodist ministers and came from a long line of traditional feminists. She became involved with social justice at a young age, demonstrating against segregation with the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) in Los Angeles, California, in 1949. After graduating from the University of New Mexico she studied at the New School for Social Research in New York City and received a master's degree in social work from the University of California, Berkeley, where she was involved in the Free Speech Movement, the People's Park confrontations and demonstrations against the Vietnam War. She became a professor in the Department of Social Work Education at San Francisco State University and chaired the United Professors of California's grievance committee in addressing the faculty strike of 1968-1969.show more
