book review: gloria steinem’s “my life on the road”

gloria steinem

 

books are like little getaways just when you need them – they let you escape normal life long enough to feel rested and relaxed, and often instills hope and curiosity. over my trip to sweden and norway, I read Gloria Steinem’s new book My Life on the Road and was pleasantly surprised. to be frank, when I bought the book, I wasn’t sure what to expect – it could be a free for all on all things feminism, or drier than expected. either way, I was game to read something from a woman who has committed her life to improving human rights.

 

perhaps the most surprising takeaway from Steinem’s book was her focus on native american rights, which, when you read her book, made a profound impact on her life. I really enjoyed learning about the struggles that native american’s went through and are still going through in tandem with women’s rights. she describes her various relationships with female leaders who inspired her not only to persevere but to work harder and stronger than she did before.

 

I was also surprised at Steinem’s focus on the importance of travel and exploration. at first I thought she was pioneering that all women should travel as much as possible (which I don’t disagree with), but her broader focus was on encouraging people to explore as much as they can, even if it means exploring your own city, neighborhoods, and cultures.

 

Steinem’s book also has quite a few gems for us career peeps. first, she reveals her fear of public speaking – something I couldn’t fathom for someone so well known and so practiced. low and behold, she did/does have a problem with it, and writes about her lessons learned, how she dealt, and what she does now.

 

additionally, Steinem also shares her encouragement to go after whatever it is that scares you. instead of staying within your comfort zone, be brave enough to try something new and go for goals that seem way to far away. the more you do this, the more you improve on three things. one, you get more use to feeling uncomfortable. two, you get use to fear much quicker, which is very healthy. and three, you go much farther than you would have if you stayed within your comfort zone (this is the most important part!).

 

before I go and spill the entire contents of the book here on the lily honey life, go out and read it yourself. you won’t regret it and you’ll learn more about the famed Gloria Steinem, a wonderful person in the world of civil and female rights.
