'When the path is dark, Gloria's words light the way forward.' - Natalie Portman
For decades, people around the world have found guidance, humour and unity in Gloria Steinem's gift for creating quotes that offer hope and inspire action. From her early days as a journalist and feminist activist, Steinem's words have helped generations to empower themselves and work together.
Covering topics from relationships ('Many are looking for the right person. Too few are trying to be the right person.') to the patriarchy ('Men are liked better when they win. Women are liked better when they lose. This is how the patriarchy is enforced every day.' ) and activism ('Revolutions, like trees, grow from the bottom up.' ), this book will make you want to laugh, march and create quotes of your own.
The Truth Will Set You Free, But First It Will Piss You Off! is both timeless and timely, a gift of hope from Steinem to readers, and a book to share with friends.

'When the path is dark, Gloria's words light the way forward. I find myself returning again and again to her words for inspiration, comfort and wisdom. She has a way of saying things you feel you knew but never knew how to articulate. Other times, she expresses ideas you've never encountered, but once you've heard them, they are impossible to deny. Her words contain the poetic clarity only truth offers.' -Natalie Portman
