This New York Times–bestselling feminist classic remains as fresh and relevant in our current climate as when it was first published. Covering two decades—from the early sixties to the early eighties—the pieces in Gloria Steinem’s diverse, stimulating, and often-prescient first collection dare to ask how our world might change for the better if we each behaved “as if everyone mattered.” An early assignment as a “girl reporter,” going undercover as a Bunny in Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Club, becomes an eye-opening exposé of appalling work conditions and sexual harassment. As Steinem observed, “I think Hefner himself wants to go down in history as a person of sophistication and glamour. But the last person I would want to go down in history as is Hugh Hefner.” In addition to “I Was a Playboy Bunny,” the pieces in this collection challenge the practices and preconceptions that marginalize, exclude, exploit, and victimize women. Steinem understands that the political is always personal, and vice versa, and so her writings range from the polemical—“Erotica vs. Pornography” and “The Politics of Food”—to the deeply personal—“Ruth’s Song,” a moving tribute to her mentally ill mother—to sharp satire like “If Men Could Menstruate.” One of the first to address topics such as female genital mutilation and transgenderism, Steinem has truly earned the right to be called a feminist pioneer, and this volume is both a testament to her legacy in the fight for equality and an entertaining, thought-provoking journey through the lives of modern women. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Gloria Steinem including rare images from the author’s personal collection.

"Gloria Steinem-writer, activist, organizer, and inspiring leader-now tells a story she has never told before, a candid account of her life as a traveler, a listener, and a catalyst for change. When people ask me why I still have hope and energy after all these years, I always say- Because I travel. Taking to the road-by which I mean letting the road take you-changed who I thought I was. The road is messy in the way that real life is messy. It leads us out of denial and into reality, out of theory and into practice, out of caution and into action, out of statistics and into stories-in short, out of our heads and into our hearts.Gloria Steinem had an itinerant childhood. When she was a young girl, her father would pack the family in the car every fall and drive across country searching for adventure and trying to make a living. The seeds were planted- Gloria realized that growing up didn't have to mean settling down. And so began a lifetime of travel, of activism and leadership, of listening to people whose voices and ideas would inspire change and revolution. My Life on the Roadis 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. In prose that is revealing and rich, Gloria reminds us that living in an open, observant, and oon the roado state of mind can make a difference in how we learn, what we do, and how we understand each other."

America's women activists have striven bravely and tirelessly to affect the course of American history. Their story, as told in letters, memoirs, diaries, and speeches, is as wide and varied as America itself. This anthology begins with the then-government's attempt to silence Anne Hutchinson, not permitted to address mixed audiences of men and women in the Massachusetts Bay colony, and leads to the formation of the women's rights movement. Highlights include Sojourner Truth describing her escape from slavery; Alice Walker's assessment of her work to end female genital mutilation; and Margarethe Cammermeyer's attempt to end the military's discharge of homosexuals.

Three New York Times–bestselling essay collections spanning the pioneering career of a legendary voice in the American feminist movement. Gloria Steinem has been a fierce and unapologetic advocate for women around the globe. Her words and actions have inspired generations of women to think differently about themselves and their roles in society. These three essay collections bring together Steinem’s most enduring work. Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions: As powerful and thought-provoking as when it was first published in 1987, this collection spans Steinem’s early years as a writer, including the controversial article documenting her undercover stint as a Playboy Bunny and the hilarious satire “If Men Could Menstruate.” Moving Beyond Words: In some of her most moving work, Steinem displays the full range of her intellectual agility and sly humor. In these rich and compelling essays, she challenges societal constructs of gender and race, freeing our understanding of wealth, strength, and aging from Freudianism and patriarchal thought. Revolution from Within: Steinem shares her journey toward achieving the inward development she discovers to be the necessary complement to external political change. An excellent introduction to one of the most important and influential figures of our era, this omnibus is a must-read for anyone interested in “the one woman who has told the truth about her life and ours” (Los Angeles Times).
