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.
