Friday Reads: My Life On The Road by Gloriaa Steinem

MyLifeonTheRoadWe’ve decided to take a romp through feminist literature for the spring on Friday Reads. We went with Caitlin Moran’s new book last week and now we are going with Gloria Steinem’s relatively new (ish) book on her live and travels.

My Life on the Road is the moving, funny, and profound story of Gloria’s growth and also the growth of a revolutionary movement for equality—and the story of how surprising encounters on the road shaped both. From her first experience of social activism among women in India to her work as a journalist in the 1960s; from the whirlwind of political campaigns to the founding of Ms. magazine; from the historic 1977 National Women’s Conference to her travels through Indian Country—a lifetime spent on the road allowed Gloria to listen and connect deeply with people, to understand that context is everything, and to become part of a movement that would change the world.
