Ms. Gloria Steinem: A Life
Her strength and wisdom have inspired women for generations, but Gloria Steinem’s life is more complex and compelling than most people realize. Her unconventional childhood caused her to rethink society’s assumptions about the roles of women and men. This spark lit a fire in her that burned for decades as she became a leading voice in the women’s movement.
Throughout the years, Gloria Steinem is perhaps the single-most iconic figure associated with women's rights, her name practically synonymous with feminism. Documenting everything from her boundary-pushing journalistic career to the foundation of Ms. magazine to being awarded the 2013 Presidential Medal of Freedom, Winifred Conkling's Ms. Gloria Steinem: A Life is a meticulously researched biography that is sure to satisfy even the most voracious of aspiring glass-ceiling smashers.
“The Ms. Foundation.” Time line of Gloria Steinem’s life. Time line of American feminist movements. Note about intersectional feminism. “Who’’s Who: A Page from Gloria Steinem’s Scrapbook.” Bibliography. Source notes. Index. Black-and-white photographs.
