"Gloria Steinem had an itinerant childhood. Every fall, her father would pack the family into the car and they would drive across the country, in search of their next adventure. The seeds were planted: Steinem would spend much of her life on the road, as a journalist, organizer, activist, and speaker. In vivid stories that span an entire career, Steinem writes about her time on the campaign trail, from Bobby Kennedy to Hillary Clinton; her early exposure to social activism in India, and the decades spent organizing ground-up movements in America; the taxi drivers who were "vectors of modern myths" and the airline stewardesses who embraced the feminist revolution; and the infinite, surprising contrasts, the "surrealism in everyday life" that Steinem encountered as she traveled back and forth across the country. With the unique perspective of one of the greatest feminist icons of the 20th and 21st centuries, here is an inspiring, profound, enlightening memoir of one woman's life-long journey"--… (mais)

I have the utmost respect for Gloria Steinem. She has been an activist in so many landmark actions involving women's and minority rights. She's been on the road most of her life traveling from different situations. This is about her on the go life. It's started as a child, and she's never stopped. It's amazing to see all she's taken part in, the historical impact. I have a major lady crush. Anyone wanting to know more about her life should read this. I love how she talks about always wanting to hear more, learn more, etc. when she goes to give a talk. She isn't one of those speakers who thinks she knows everything. ( )

I grew up in the era of feminism, was familiar with all the main players, perused Ms magazine and had read many compelling articles by Gloria Steinhem. I knew the book would be interesting and include a lot of history of the movement.

What surprised me was the level of her involvement with the organizational side of the movement, the toll it took on her life and the lasting bonds with other dynamic women of the era.

When I look in wonder at Stacey Abrams today, I see her debt to Gloria Steinem both in

The timing of Mrs. America so soon after this reading, reinforced and expanded what the book taught, both about Gloria Steinem and the movement as a whole.

Debra Winger gave Ms. Steinem a perfect voice in the book.

Strongly recommended! Also see my review of Mrs. America. ( )

I don't often read non-fiction, and I'm even less likely to read a memoir. However, I've considered myself to be a Feminist for most of my life, and when I saw Gloria Steinem's new book on Netgalley, I had to request it. Beyond a few minor details, I don't know much about her, and I've never read any of her other books.

She's an excellent writer and story teller. That alone makes My Life on the Road worth reading. She's led a life of travel to the point that I think a better title might be "The Road: My Life." So, if you're looking for a good armchair travel experience, this book is it. Though the writing style is considerably different, I would say the book as a whole is similar to Henry Rollins' Smile, You're Traveling. The only issue I had with My Life on the Road was Steinem's very biased portrayal of political events. Not having known much about a couple of the events she wrote about, I later learned through some research that, though she was factually accurate, she didn't give the full story, and her incomplete version was a bit misleading. With that being said, I wasn't expecting a bias-free book. This is still a memoir, and, therefore, mostly her personal opinions and observations. Besides, when have politics ever been unbiased? Ultimately, the result is that I became interested in learning more about the subjects she discussed, and that's a win-win as far as I'm concerned.

A lot of celebrity memoirs have been released within the past couple of years, and it seems to be the new trend. Even if you're not a Feminist, but you love a bit of armchair travel, this one is an excellent choice. ( )

A fascinating concept, but a slightly disjointed structure. ( )

Very interesting...so much I did not know about her life. And the paperback edition includes a chapter not in the hardcover format. Sending it to my sisters...

Dr. John Sharpe of London, who in 1957, a decade before physicians in England could legally perform an abortion for any reason other than the health of the woman, took the considerable risk of referring for an abortion a twenty-two-year-old American on her way to India.

Knowing only that she had broken an engagement at home to seek an unknown fate, he said, "You must promise me two things. First, you will not tell anyone my name. Second, you will do what you want to do with your life." Dear Dr. Sharpe, I believe you, who knew the law was unjust, would not mind if I say this so long after your death: I've done the best I could with my life. This book is for you.
