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).
