Summary

Perfect for fans of I Dissent comes an inspirational and empowering account of the life of women's rights icon Gloria Steinem.

As a young girl, Gloria Steinem thought for herself and spoke her mind. She read many books by her favorite authors and imagined herself as the heroine of the story.

Gloria wished. She read. And imagined.

But Gloria grew up during a time when women were not encouraged, or even allowed, to do a lot of the things men could do: go to college, get a job, open a bank account, and more. There were restrictions that made it impossible for women to be independent or equal to men. So, Gloria set out to change that . . .

Gloria listened. She watched. And wrote.
Gloria believed. She marched. And dreamed.

From unconventional childhood, to Smith College, to Ms. magazine, to the women's liberation movement, to feminist icon --Gloria Takes a Stand brings to the page a spirited look at Gloria Steinem's influential life, energizing a new generation of feminists to stand up and demand equal rights for all people.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Adding to the growing, yet still needed, #MeToo books for young readers comes this picture-book biography of Gloria Steinem. Starting with Gloria's childhood, traveling the country for her family's antique business instead of attending school, Rinker continues with her attendance at Smith College in the 1950s. As Steinem began to notice gender disparities, she eventually saw that women's rights bridged with civil rights. After listening to women's stories when no one else seemed to, Steinem began to speak out as a feminist and, in 1971, along with Dorothy Pitman Hughes, she created Ms. magazine, the first magazine owned and written by women. The author highlights each phase of Steinem's life with direct (though undocumented) quotes and with three short sentences, such as Gloria listened. She watched. And wrote, which become a refrain. Textured and digitally enhanced mixed-media illustrations evoke the diversity she celebrated, while endpapers sport Ms. covers with Maya Angelou, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and other groundbreaking feminists. Back matter gives more details on both Steinem and women's history in the U.S.--Angela Leeper Copyright 2019 Booklist"
