Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions is Gloria Steinem's most diverse and timeless collection of essays. Since its publication in 1983 - a phenomenal success that sold nearly half a million copies-male and female readers alike have acclaimed it as a witty, warn, and life-changing view of the world as if women mattered. Steinem's most personal writing is here, from the humorous expose I Was a Playboy Bunny to prescient essays on female genital mutilation and the difference between erotica and pornography. The satirical and hilarious If Men Could Menstruate is alone worth the price of admission. ...the definitive philosophical and historical work about this movement that, belatedly, has transformed society.

    " I enjoyed this book but despite all of her inclusionary talk there is no place in her philosophy for a feminist who is against abortion. If you are against abortion you are a fascist. Period. I wish Gloria did not have such a hard on for abortion because it is possible, you know, to be a feminist and still believe that abortion, as the ending of a human life, is murder. "

    " By far the best essay in this book is "Ruth's Song (Because She Could Not Sing It)". It's the story of Steinem's relationship with her mother, and it hits you like a blow to the solar plexus. If nothing else, read this book for that essay and the brilliant satirical "If Men Could Menstruate." Otherwise, trigger warning for transphobia and colonialist attitudes. "

    " This a collection of essays by Gloria steinem--I'm not normally a Steinem fan but this book is pretty great. I especially like her essay on her Playboy Bunny expose. "

    " Gloria Steinem is a well-known name in the feminist world and I was excited to read some of her writing! As a feminist myself, it was fascinating to ready what life was like for women during the Second Wave. Admittedly, some of the essays were a bit slow and boring but for the most part, I found them intriguing. These essays were mostly written in the 70s and 80s and it was interesting to see what issues have come a long way and what issues still have a long way to go. Definitely a must read for any feminist! "
