Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions (Subsequent) (Paperback) (Gloria Steinem)
About this item
Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions--a phenomenal success that sold nearly half a million copies since its original publication in 1983--is Gloria Steinem's most diverse and timeless collection of essays. Both male and female readers have acclaimed it as a witty, warm, and life-changing view of the world--"as if women mattered." Steinem's truly personal writing is here, from the humorous exposé "I Was a Playboy Bunny" to the moving tribute to her mother "Ruth's Song (Because She Could Not Sing It)" to prescient essays on female genital mutilation and the difference between ****** and ******. The satirical and hilarious "If Men Could Menstruate" alone is worth the price of admission.
This second edition features a new preface by the author and added notes on classic essays.
