The Feministing Five: Katherine Acey
“Acey has been involved with Astraea for the better part of three decades, as well as with a mind-boggling number of other organizations including Women in the Arts, New York Women Against Rape, Human Rights Watch and Women Make Movies. After twenty-three years as executive director she is moving on (the interim executive director is Aimee Thorne-Thomsen, who I interviewed not long ago). Acey’s plans for the near future, she says, involve resting and reflecting, then spending quality time with friends and family around the world. But she’ll be staying on as a senior advisor at Astraea, and she predicts that she’ll back in political work soon. After a lifetime devoted to social justice, it’s a difficult habit to break.”
