An evening with Gloria Steinem: More Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions, in conversation with Favianna Rodriguez and moderated/podcasted by Inflection Point’s Lauren Schiller.
What is Gloria Steinem
thinking about today in our era of #MeToo
and intersectionality? How can today’s feminists learn from our foremothers, and vice versa? We’ll celebrate an updated, third edition of Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions, originally published in 1983 — a book that has sold over half a million copies, and counting. As author Susan Faludi (Backlash) put it, Outrageous Acts “will always be… a required feminist reader.” From satires to moving tributes, confessions (yes, the Playboy bunny essay is in here) and analyses, the book includes classics along with new material.
Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from an ever-relevant icon in a smart, sassy conversation that will provoke and inspire you.
In collaboration with the Bay Area Book Festival Women Lit series, Lauren Schiller, the host of Inflection Point from KALW will interview Steinem along with a surprise guest. KALW is a proud sponsor of this event.
