This week's letter is "O"

Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions by Gloria Steinem

From Learn Out Loud: First published in 1983, this is noted feminist Gloria Steinem's most diverse and timeless collection of witty, life-changing essays, written "as if women mattered." Steinem's most personal writing is here, including her humorous exposé, "I Was a Playboy Bunny," a tribute to her mother, "Ruth's Song," as well as prescient writings 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.


I haven't read this one yet, but I think it will be an interesting look into the second women's feminist movement in America.
