Determined to discover the woman behind the headlines, Heilbrun explores the many facets of Steinem's complex life, including her difficult childhood in Toledo, Ohio, caring for an incapacitated mother; the college that provided a safe haven from the anxieties of home; the formative trip to India and the influence of Gandhi's teachings; the awakening that changed her from a political columnist for New York magazine to the most famous feminist in the world; the triumphant creation of Ms. magazine and the long, hard struggle to keep it going; and, ultimately, the profound introspection she undertook in the '90s.
