My Life On The Road – Gloria Steinem (2015)


❤️❤️❤️❤️

In the last 8 months, i have made it my goal to read every bit of feminist literature or memoir that I could get my hands on. In my lifetime, Steinem has been a name synonymous with the Women’s Movement, and vocal feminists. Detailing her life as a feminist activist and organizer, we see how people viewed her as a pretty, young blonde single woman, who felt most at home travelling, exploring and learning. Steinem touches on scandals in her life, such as the feud with Betty Friedan, her decision to remain single and childless – and why that should not need to be a topic for discussion. She covers social and political issues of the time, and the intersectionality of the women’s movement in conjunction with the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. Steinem is thoroughly readable and anyone with more than a passing interest in North American history will find her book entrancing. (276 pages)
