Gloria’s Voice

The Story of Gloria Steinem, Feminist, Activist, Leader

Publisher: Sterling Children’s Books

Gloria Steinem is an influential feminist and political activist, but what led to her success? In this beautiful picture book, we learn a little about Gloria’s childhood, life at university and her two years in India –where she was inspired by Gandhi’s political philosophy, and returned to the US wanting to help others with their struggles.

Becoming a journalist in New York, Steinem found that, as a woman, she was assigned only to features on beauty and fashion, so she decided to start Ms Magazine, written by and for women.

An inspirational picture book biography of an amazing woman, Gloria’s Voice shows us how we are capable of making a difference in the world if we are focused on our goals.

Aura Lewis’ dreamy, girly 70s-style watercolour illustration is accessible and makes for a beautiful read for budding journalists, feminists and for all children with a passion for justice.
