Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6-9-An introduction to the contributions that Steinem has made to the women's rights movement in the last 35 years. With an objective view, a flowing style, and frequent well-placed quotations from Steinem's books and articles, Lazo presents her subject's difficult childhood, early influences, educational background, writing career, and her activities as a feminist. An up-to-date, extensive bibliography attests to the author's research. Black-and-white and full-color photos appear throughout the text. This book updates Carolyn Daffron's Gloria Steinem (Chelsea, 1987), which has many of the same photos, reproduced less clearly. In general, Daffron covers more of Steinem's life experience in greater depth and writes for an older audience. Lazo's title has a lengthier bibliography with more varied sources. Both books discuss Steinem's decision to have an abortion and her brief stint as a Playboy Bunny, during which she wrote articles exposing the Playboy Clubs' unfair treatment of their female employees. A useful addition to most collections.-Phyllis Graves, Creekwood Middle School, Kingwood, TX
