Book Description

“Without self-esteem, the only change is an exchange of masters; with it, there is no need for masters.” —Gloria Steinem

When trying to find books to give to “the countless brave and smart women I met who didn’t think of themselves as either brave or smart,” Gloria Steinem realized that books either supposed that external political change would cure everything or that internal change would. None linked internal and external change together in a seamless circle of cause and effect, effect and cause. She undertook to write such a book, and ended up transforming herself as well as others.
The result of her external plus internal reflection is this bestselling and truly transforming book: part collection of personal stories from her own life and the lives of many others, part revolutionary guide to finding community and inspiration. Steinem finds role models in a very young and uncertain Gandhi as well as unlikely heroes from the streets to history. Revolution from Within addresses the core issues of self-authority and unjust external authority, and argues that the first is necessary to transform the second.

Have only got two chapters into the book but really enjoying it so far. Gloria Steinem speaks succinctly and gives examples involving both men and women and talks about lessons she has learnt from her own life. Its not a how-to book but the examples of how other people have been empowered through their own life experiences are inspiring. Unlike what other readers say, it doesn't come across as bitter but passionate-showing that this is an issue she cares about a lot, as we should too.

This book really transforms the way you feel about life and yourself and includes a great "bibliotherapy" at the end.

Don't like stuff like this, full of contention and feminist word
could have returned it but it is cheap and old book anyway, i use it
as supporting factor in my library.
recommended for those who are bitter and never want to get better, especially female
