Gloria Steinem: One Woman's Power: A Biography of Gloria Steinem

by Sondra Henry, Emily Taitz

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 5-7 Henry and Taitz cover Steinem's childhood, education, and career, as well as her political beliefs, including a sympathetic discussion of the illegal abortion that she had as a young woman in England. Steinem's growth as a feminist is clearly delineated, from her early doubts about marriage to her founding of Ms. magazine and her support and work for the Equal Rights Amendment. The authors briefly but clearly discuss the background of people and events before discussing their impact on Steinem's life, and through this introductory book, readers will learn about the growth of the women's movement in the United States. An insert of photos traces Steinem's life, and the unusually extensive bibliography will support student researchers. An enjoyable as well as informative book.
