A Comedy Self-help Podcast to Make Life Suck Less!

Would you like to have a revolution from within?

Jul 5, 2019

This week, we're reviewing the New York Times Bestseller Revolution from Within: A Book of Self-Esteem by Gloria Steinem.

GLORIA STEINEM!

And let us tell you... after reading the book, it is SO great to have the vocabulary to distinguish between the different kinds of self-esteem, and to understand how it doesn't just affect individuals, but nations as a whole. Really eye opening stuff!

Gloria Steinem is a writer, speaker, activist and feminist organizer. She co-founded New York Magazine and Ms. Magazine, where she was an editor for 15 years.

She graduated from Smith College in 1956, and then spent two years in India on a Chester Bowles Fellowship. She wrote for Indian publications, and was influenced by Gandhian activism. She has received a ton of awards, including, the Bill of Rights Award from the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California, the National Gay Rights Advocates Award, the Ceres Medal from the United Nations, and a number of honorary degrees. Parenting magazine selected her for its Lifetime Achievement Award in 1995 for her work in promoting girls' self-esteem, and Biography magazine listed her as one of the 25 most influential women in America. In 1993, she was inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame and in 2013, President Obama awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
