In this book from the critically acclaimed, multimillion-copy bestselling Little People, BIG DREAMS series, discover the incredible life of Gloria Steinem, the world's most famous feminist.
Gloria realised from a young age that the women were treated differently than men, and that wasn't fair. Beginning her career as a journalist, her witty and honest articles challenged readers to see the world through her eyes. Following in the footsteps of her suffragist grandmother, she became passionate about feminism and grassroots activism. There was so much work to be done, and Gloria kept working - she became a passionate leader in the women's liberation movement and dedicated her life to brining about change. A spokesperson for an entire generation, to this day Gloria inspires us to keep working for a fairer society - for everyone. This inspiring book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of this amazing feminist's life.
Little People, BIG DREAMS is a bestselling series of books and educational games that explore the lives of outstanding people, from designers and artists to scientists and activists. All of them achieved incredible things, yet each began life as a child with a dream.
Part of the incredibly popular Little People, Big Dreams series, this book is a biography of the ground-breaking American feminist Gloria Steinem. It details her life from her humble beginnings living in a trailer in Ohio with her family, to learning first hand how boys and girls (and men and women) were treated differently. She went to college and travelled to India then returned to New York to set up a global feminist movement which is still active today.
This book is inspiring for many reasons and will be an asset to any school or classroom library. It would also make the perfect gift for any opinionated little girl who needs a little reminder that anyone can change the world.
