Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions: Second Edition

Author: Gloria Steinem

Year Published: 1995

Description: Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions: Second Edition is a reissue of a collection of writings on women's issues and experiences by American feminist, journalist and activist Gloria Steinem. Topics addressed run the gamut from a moving memoir of her mother to a humorous account of her time spent working undercover at a Playboy Club in the 1960s. In revisiting the essays, which were written over a period of three decades and originally published as a compilation in 1983, Steinem sought to illuminate the continued relevance of many of their themes.

Recommended by:

'Despite deprecations the media were reporting about "Women's Lib" or "bra burners," several more years…taught me that daily rebellions and dreams of equality were sprouting up everywhere--inside families and in public life.'
