Gloria Steinem was no stranger to injustice even from a young age. She never blamed her single, mentally ill mother for being unable to hold down a job, but rather blamed society's intrinsic hostility toward working women. This was the spark that lit a fire in her that would burn for decades, and continues to burn brightly today.
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.
