"As a speaker, writer and feminist spokesperson, Steinem has no equal. She expresses herself with irresistible conviction.... Steinem sprinkles her talk with wit while offering hope and encouragement that our lives can be better." ( Library Journal)

Inspirational and Intelligent

Gloria is a total iconic queen! What she says makes sense of why the patriarchy makes us feel weird and confused sometimes. I love listening to all of her wisdom.

Inspired me to start my own small acts of Everyday Feminist Rebellion.

Thank you audible for making a lot of this content free of charge.

Quite the life changer.
Wish I’d read this in my teens.

EVERY WOMAN NEEDS TO LISTEN TO THIS NOW AND GROW

I have long bee MA fan of Glora since as I read outrageous acts and everyday rebellions and revolution from within. These lectures like those books are now so close to my heart .i urge every woman to listen to this read her books because it will certainty confirm a few things this has been going on a long time and that it is coming alarmingly in our near future and the only way out is to open our eyes now and get busy . Harness your energy and galvanise yourself . Organise she implores us to do so . I love that she has predicted so much and that she is still out there I afraid. I am a lot older now and still not afraid because of this astonishing woman .

Amazing insight on equality.

Absolutely loved it. I'm binge reading all of Gloria's work. It's so good. I learned a lot about the witch burnings that I had no idea about.

Empowering the disadvantaged

Gloria speaking in the 90's. if you have never listened to Gloria Steinem before or read any of her work this would be a great introduction. She's funny too, you'll get some laughs for sure. You may have only heard about Gloria from her detractors and thus she had been villainized. Perhaps you agree with that characterization, if so I would ask why? What have you taken in from her that you can evaluate not just what you heard but what you actually read or heard from her hand or mouth? If nothing, then here is a nice short introduction.

Awesome!

Listening to these speeches in Steinem's own voice gave me hope and inspiration for the rights of women and minorities for now and in the future. I highly recommend this.
