New and notable: Gloria Steinem's My Life on the Road

Gloria Steinem, celebrated writer, activist, organizer, and leader, has written a memoir of her life as a traveler, and it's now on sale! My Life on the Road gives a candid account of Steinem's touring years, during which she was involved in a wide range of social activism and movements. Don't miss our event with Steinem on Tuesday, December 1st! Details below!

Steinem has stressed that she wrote new book as a road book, rather than a typical memoir. This is important, she says, because the road—and road literature—has long been the domain of men. Women are not encouraged to spend years on the road—but they should be! Perhaps Steinem's book will open that door a little wider. Her accounts of learning about social activism from women in India, working as a journalist in the 1960s, founding Ms. magazine, and traveling to the 1977 National Women's Conference provide many sources for inspiration.
