  • I can t believe I waited until I was 34 to read this book If someone had handed this to me when I was 21 or so it would have saved me so much pain from making idiotic choices because I didn t know better, or have an example as to how to navigate a world that I wasn t emotionally equipped to handle I wouldn t have married an abuser I wouldn t have looked for my missing half in another person, I would have learned it was already there, in myself.I skipped over this book dozens of times when I saw [...]



  • This book sat on my currently reading list for what seems like forever It took me a long time to finish the text, not because it isn t interesting, but rather because it is I took a lot of time savoring Steinem s words and doing a lot of highlighting and mental note taking Actually, I should have taken written notes they serve me a lot better I have always admired Steinem as a straightforward, pull no punches feminist I have a picture of her in my office with the quote, When violence against wo [...]


  • I have always enjoyed Gloria Steinem s books In this book she defines Self Esteem as Favorable appreciation or opinion of oneself I remember reading this book years ago and truly realizing that we accompany ourselves where ever we go we cannot get away from ourselves so we might as well become our own best friend We have the power to change some things about ourselves that we do not like and learn to accept those things that cannot be changed She also writes The art of life is not controlling wh [...]


  • First of all, who can can reflect on the evolution of feminism in the U.S nay, the world, without thinking simultaneously of Gloria Steinem And as forward thinking as I consider myself, feminism feels like a turnoff Only after watching a Steinem documentary on HBO did I become interested in her And this woman is the real thing In Self Esteem, Steinem is mind blowingly intelligent As a woman, a parent, a child, and a human thinker, this book speaks to me She integrates many disciplines sociology, [...]


  • Part memoir, part cultural critique, part self help book, Gloria Steinem s Revolution from Within remains extremely innovative in its premise of connecting the concept to individual self esteem to the larger context of social justice Despite being written nearly 20 years ago, the book s message remains profoundly relevant the political is personal From education, to science, to romance Steinem deftly demonstrates the ways in which we can lose our self, because of the messages we absorb from the [...]


  • Haven t heard of Gloria Steinem until I got myself a copy of this book I have read than a dozen self help books and most of them say one thing if you want to be succesful, you have to start from within Then I ask, what within Steinem answered that It s self esteem Steinem, and the experiences of people she used in this book made me revisit the monsters of my past and face them, head on I may not be a totally changed person after reading this, but it sure awakened something in me.


  • I read this a long time ago and its exact contents are hazy in my mind However, I do remember having a sense of being nurtured by her There was no proselytizing or sense of superiority that some authors writing in this genre seem to possess What really came across was her great compassion towards women and their personal struggles.


  • One of the handful of books i ve read and re read Gloria Steinem hero, I hope you know that Only read it if you re ready for something real and enduring, something that will still be relevant 200 years from now because ALL power comes from within, people.



  • i won the hardcover version of this book in a feminist essay contest as a freshman or first year, i should say i think it was my first year, maybe second in high school as a result i sat on a panel with other winners of the contest being a panel there were people in the audience the male participants dominated the conversation i m not sure i said anything same thing when i was on the academically speaking team in middle school man, i didn t want to press that buzzer later in high school i wrote [...]


  • One of the best non fiction books I have ever read It provides so much well researched insight into human nature, psychology, gender and race inequalities, behavioural patterns, and self esteem with so much empathy and kindness, you will want to live in this book Gloria Steinem managed to find the most comforting writing voice to deliver crucial messages about our many personal and cultural insecurities and weaknesses Unlike many male authors, her authorial voice is devoid of an overpowering sen [...]


  • i have a lot of respect for first wave feminists, and this is my favorite of the first wave books i like revolution from within because steinem focuses on sharing her personal experiences as a woman trying to enter the workforce in the 1960s and doesn t get too into preaching at her reader some of the stories she recounts are really shocking i.e blatant sexual innuendo from bosses an expectation of cashing in to move up it s feels the worst possible episode of mad men you can imagine, and is a w [...]


  • I grew up with Ms Steinem being a model for any young woman who was interested in being liberated and feminist This book looks at and talks about the difficulties many , if not most, women have with the basic idea of liking themselves, and being good enough just as they are She uses herself as a guide, and writes in a personable and engaging way.


  • Read this book thrice After the first time I read it, I started thinking about religion and also roles I was expected to play in society Why am I expected to marry Why am I not good enough Why are there no female Popes I ve also read the Cinderella Complex by Colette Dowling and it made sense after reading this book.I would recommend this book to men and women.


  • A wonderful book of self esteem should be required reading for all high school girls Love Steinem I would have burned my bra for her, but at the time I was too young and wasn t wearing one But in all seriousness, a really, well written book by an amazing lady.


  • I am already trying to turn around the way I look at the world This book is helping My favorite bit so far The job of parents is to turn out kids with enough confidence to make their OWN way in the world The job of governments is to do the same for countries


  • Gloria Steinem takes the stance that everyone s childhood was really really fucked up, and if you don t remember it being fucked up it s probably because you are repressing traumatic memories Read about 300 pages, felt desperately grim, took me a couple of weeks to recover


  • Very informative, educational and accurate I appreciate the amount of research and facts put into the book and I feel thoroughly rife with motivation and a new appreciation for my life and my true self.


  • Not a self help book Wonderfully written about the evolution of women s roles Explained a lot of progress that as someone born in the Sixties, have taken for granted Recommend you read this one as well on audible, as Steinem reads it.


  • this book literally changed my life, I have read it several times and dipped in many times Can t recommend it highly enough.


  • The most helpful book I ve ever read Took me over month because it was full of information I needed and needed to process Opened my eyes in a big way.



  • Steinem is a feminist powerhouse, not in an over indulgent, preachy way Her opinions and analyses of gender disparity are sensible and have laid the foundation for modern discourse Steinem with this book published in 1992 has touched the surface about many critical issues that women face It is a good book to start off with if you want to explore the various levels to feminist ideology It is the origin of many feminist ideas you see and read on popular TV and music Having negative connotations to [...]



  • It s never too late for a happy childhood It s men with low self esteem who give women and other men the most problems from subtle condescension to grandiosity to outright violence Yet men are neglected readers when they do look for help We teach what we need to learn and we write what we need to know Most writers write to say something about other people and it doesn t last Good writers write to find out about themselves and it lasts forever My sympathy was reflecting my own feelings of nonexis [...]


  • A very good friend recommended this book and I felt it could be worth a read Guess what happened I had to read it, it did take than two months to finish Every page gives one a greater insight to a life of a leader or entertainer It took me than a month to finish, because I took time to read of the pages Sometimes, I ve re read sections just to make sure I understood what was being said Gloria has done a lot of research prior to writing this book It provides an analyses, shares experiences of m [...]


  • Too bad you cannot rate in halves because I d a rather give this book a 2.5 than a 3.The only reason I d rate it that low is because I had an extreme love hate relationship with the book It s incredibly well written and very interesting to follow, but most of the content are not for everybody I started reading it since I am a fan of Gloria and didn t mind it is a self help book.She did a great job in addressing it to both men and women, it s about understanding one self and getting in terms of w [...]


  • I have read many many books, and I have to say that this is one of my absolute favorites Don t worry, this is not a self help, how to love yourself book This is a straight forward, intense account of the world around us as we know it Steinem s book is also so obviously well researched, in fact startling facts and statistics reside on every page Gloria Steinem has given us a wonderful opportunity to see her as far than just a feminist, political activist, and one of the most influental women of [...]


  • This book has a great message as its basis There are some weird tidbits of advice in it, however Read it with an open mind, and all will be well Unfortunately, the collective group of women that would benefit most from its message will never read it because of those odd tidbits As a new mom who grew up with her own self esteem issues, I want to do everything possible to prevent that for my daughter And I agree with Gloria that step 1 is to heal yourself, give yourself the things that you did not [...]
