Publisher's Summary

Gloria Steinem - writer, activist, organizer, and one of the most inspiring leaders in the world - now tells a story she has never told before, a candid account of how her early years led her to live an on-the-road kind of life, traveling, listening to people, learning, and creating change. She reveals the story of her own growth in tandem with the growth of an ongoing movement for equality. This is the story at the heart of My Life on the Road.

Includes an introduction read by Gloria Steinem.

What the critics say

"My Life on the Road is filled with beautifully told stories of the people she has spoken with and listened to, been changed by, helped organize, got radicalized by, could get lost in, could get found in. It is soul material, human and political, funny and touching, deeply spiritual. I began it again the day after I finished." (Anne Lamott)

"My Life on the Road is an inspiring work, a call for action. Steinem shares her life as a global freedom fighter, inviting readers to continue the journey - and the struggle." (Bell Hooks)

“Like Steinem herself, [My Life on the Road] is thoughtful and astonishingly humble. It is also filled with a sense of the momentous while offering deeply personal insights into what shaped her.” (O, The Oprah Magazine)

Intriguing and inspiring.

Intriguing and inspiring. Gloria Steinem continues to motivate me to make a difference. Her life on the road is nothing short of amazing abd Debra Winger does a great job narrating.

Inspiring

I'm glad I read and listened to Gloria's amazingly insightful, thoughtful and heart-centred account of her time on the road. It helped me better understand both Gloria and feminism in context of history and humanity. The courage and wisdom she has demonstrated during her lifelong journey of listening to and organizing women (and thus contributing to the growth of all humanity) has inspired me, as a feminist, to keep listening, to keep involved, even if it's only a tiny fraction of what Gloria has achieved so far.

Horrible

Misleading title, horrible and monotonous voice and subject matter not at all about her life on the road. It was a summary of her activism and boring events.
So so disappointing for someone who is supposedly an icon in feminist progress .
