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.” Steinem’s experiences on the front lines of the women’s movement chart her own consciousness-raising and serve as a metaphor for the evolution of feminist politics and social change. An early assignment as a “girl reporter,” going undercover as a Bunny in the Playboy Club, becomes an eye-opening exposé of appalling work conditions and sexual harassment. In many of the pieces that follow, Steinem challenges 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—“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 collection 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.

A powerful and moving treatise on the surprises of aging from an influential feminist writer and activist who thinks beyond stereotypes The older I get, the more intensely I feel about the world around me. Gloria Steinem has been an eloquent and outspoken voice for women’s rights and equality for more than four decades. In Doing Sixty & Seventy she addresses an essential concern of people everywhere—and especially of women: the issue of aging. Whereas turning fifty, in her experience, is “leaving a much-loved and familiar country,” turning sixty means “arriving at the border of a new one.” With insight, intelligence, wit, and heartfelt honesty, she explores the landscapes of this new country and celebrates what she has called “the greatest adventure of our lives.” While appreciating everybody’s experiences as different, Steinem sees these years as charged with possibilities. Dealing with stereotypes and the “invisibility” that often accompany a woman’s senior years can be as liberating as it is frustrating. It frees women as well as men to embrace that “full, glorious, alive-in-the-moment, don’t-give-a-damn yet caring-for-everything sense of the right now.” This ebook features an illustrated biography of Gloria Steinem including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.

Steinem’s career-spanning collection of essays—each one a book in itself—re-imagine everything from the masculinization of wealth to Freudian thought and aging With cool humor and rich intellect, Gloria Steinem strips bare our social constructions of gender and race, explaining just how limiting these invented cultural identities can be. In the first of six sections, Steinem imagines how our understanding of human psychology would be different in a witty reversal: What if Freud had been a woman who inflicted biological inferiority on men (think “womb envy”)? In other essays, the author presents positive examples of people who turn stereotypes on their heads, from a female bodybuilder to Mahatma Gandhi, whose followers absorbed his wisdom that change starts at the bottom. And in some of the most moving pieces, Steinem reveals something of her own complicated history as a writer, woman, and citizen of the world.

Gloria Steinem had an itinerant childhood. Every fall, her father would pack the family into the car and they would drive across the country, in search of their next adventure. The seeds were planted: Steinem would spend much of her life on the road, as a journalist, organizer, activist, and speaker. In vivid stories that span an entire career, Steinem writes about her time on the campaign trail, from Bobby Kennedy to Hillary Clinton; her early exposure to social activism in India; organizing ground-up movements in America; the taxi drivers who were "vectors of modern myths" and the airline stewardesses who embraced feminism; and the infinite contrasts, the "surrealism in everyday life" that Steinem encountered as she travelled back and forth across the country. With the unique perspective of one of the greatest feminist icons of the 20th and 21st centuries, here is an inspiring, profound, enlightening memoir of one woman's life-long journey.

The antidote to an epidemic among mothers to achieve unattainable standards The 1970S' FEMINIST MOVEMENT changed a lot for women. It paved the way for a generation of girls who could largely do and be all that the boys could do and be. But now those girls are becoming mothers themselves and realizing things aren't so equal after all. In Stunned, journalist Karen Bridson explores how women today may have the right to achieve what their fathers achieved, but are expected to do it while doing most of what their mothers did too.As a result, women are angry about the inequality inside their homes and are beginning to see how sexism beyond the domestic realm has never really been fully erased at all. From grander-thanever domestic and mothering standards to the financial and professional setback motherhood brings, there's a whole lot leaving women stunned these days. Stunned is a call to action to women to finish the jobs their mothers' generation started. It's about recognizing that the way things are structured isn't in women's favor—even today—and deciding to do something about it. Stunned lets women know they are not alone, that things shouldn't be the way they are, and that change is possible.

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).

"Margaret Atwood's Power Politics first appeared in 1971, startling its audience with its vital dance of woman and man. Thirty years later it still startles, and is just as iconoclastic as ever. These poems occupy all at once the intimate, the political, and the mythic. Here Atwood makes us realize that we may think our own personal dichotomies are unique, but really they are multiple, universal. Clear, direct, wry, unrelentingÑAtwood's poetic powers are honed to perfection in this important early work."
