Janet Willen is co-author with Marjorie Gann of Speak a Word for Freedom: Women against Slavery and Five Thousand Years of Slavery, both published by Tundra Books. Speak a Word for Freedom profiles fourteen courageous women from the 1700s to today who fought against slavery throughout the world. In its starred review Publishers Weekly wrote, “Readers who think of slavery as an institution relegated to the past will be enlightened by this engrossing study of female abolitionists from the 18th century to the present day.”
A writer and editor for more than thirty years, Janet published professional magazine articles and edited academic and school books. She is a longtime volunteer with the Montgomery County Public Library and lives in Silver Spring, Maryland.
