GLORIA TAKES A STAND
HOW GLORIA STEINEM LISTENED, WROTE, AND CHANGED THE WORLD
Jessica M Rinker
Synopsis
As a young girl, Gloria Steinem thought for herself and spoke her mind. She read many books by her favorite authors and imagined herself as the heroine of the story.

But Gloria grew up during a time when women were not encouraged, or even allowed, to do a lot of the things men could do: go to college, get a job, open a bank account, and more. There were restrictions that made it impossible for women to be independent or equal to men. So, Gloria set out to change that . . .
