Gloria: A Life (Tcg Edition) (Paperback)
"Gloria: A Life is a unique, deeply moving performance created in the hopeful, conversational spirit of its extraordinary subject." --Sara Holdren, New York Magazine's Vulture
"One part theater, one part consciousness-raising group therapy session, Gloria: A Life offers an experience that promises to be a more intimate recollection of Steinem's journey, not only because it's been singularly shaped by the hands of women." --Noor Brara, Vogue
Five decades after Gloria Steinem began raising her voice for equality and championing the voices of others, she remains a leader of the American feminist movement. Emily Mann's new play traces the progress of Steinem's extraordinary life, from her undercover Playboy Bunny expos in the 1960s, through her founding of Ms. Magazine in the 1970s, to her activism in today's women's movement.
