Gloria Steinem had an itinerant childhood. Every fall, her father would pack the family into the car and they would drive across the country, in search of their next adventure. Steinem would spend much of her life on the road, as a journalist, organizer, activist, and speaker. In vivid stories that span an entire career, Steinem writes about her time on the campaign trail from Bobby Kennedy to Hillary Clinton, her early exposure to social activism in India, organizing ground-up movements in America, the taxi drivers who were vectors of modern myths and the infinite contrasts that Steinem encountered as she traveled back and forth across the country. My Life on the Road provides a unique perspective of one of the greatest feminist icons of the 20th and 21st centuries, in an inspiring, profound, enlightening memoir of one woman’s life-long journey.

Gloria Steinem is a writer, lecturer, editor, and feminist activist. In 1972, she co-founded Ms. magazine, and remained one of its editors for fifteen years. In 1968, she had helped to found New York magazine, where she was a political columnist and wrote feature articles. Her books include the bestsellers Revolution from Within: A Book of Self-Esteem, Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions, Moving Beyond Words, and Marilyn: Norma Jean, on the life of Marilyn Monroe. Ms. Steinem has received the Penney-Missouri Journalism Award, the Front Page and Clarion awards, National Magazine awards, an Emmy Citation for excellence in television writing, the Women’s Sports Journalism Award, the Lifetime Achievement in Journalism Award from the Society of Professional Journalists, and many more. In 2013, she received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Obama.
