Product Description

An illustrated collection of Gloria Steinem's most inspirational and outrageous quotes, with an introduction and essays by the feminist activist herself

For decades, people around the world have found guidance, humour and unity in Gloria Steinem's gift for creating quotes that offer hope and inspire action. From her early days as a journalist and feminist activist, Steinem's words have helped generations to empower themselves and work together.

Covering topics from relationships ('Many are looking for the right person. Too few are trying to be the right person.') to the patriarchy ('Men are liked better when they win. Women are liked better when they lose. This is how the patriarchy is enforced every day.' ) and activism ('Revolutions, like trees, grow from the bottom up.' ), this book will make you want to laugh, march and create quotes of your own.

The Truth Will Set You Free, But First It Will Piss You Off! is both timeless and timely, a gift of hope from Steinem to readers, and a book to share with friends.
