The Essays That Made Gloria Steinem an Icon
Posing as a Playboy bunny. Deconstructing porn. Examining the myth of Jackie Kennedy Onassis. Gloria Steinem, who turned 80 in March, has always been a fearless writer. And nowhere is that more clear than in her timeless essay collection, Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions.
The book is our second pick in our partnership with Open Road Media, a program dedicated to bringing you classic nonfiction works at a special price. Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions spans decades of Steinem's work and features her some all-time greatest pieces, including our favorite, "If Men Could Menstruate," which you can read in full on Longform. It perfectly demonstrates the wry wit that makes Steinem's incisive writing all the more enjoyable.
