I really enjoy the “Little People BIG DREAMS” series because you can quickly learn a lot about some great people. This particular book is about Gloria Steinem, who as a little girl realized that she was treated a certain way just for being female. Gloria is now the world’s most famous feminist. Gloria from a young age realized that women and men should be able to do the same things – and maybe even together. Once she moved to NY, she found she fit in more and worked hard to have a job and support women. Gloria teaches us that it doesn’t matter what gender you are, what matters is your dream is only yours to determine.
I love how each book ends with a lesson for the young readers (or not so young, in my case) and helps them think about things. I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
In this book from the critically acclaimed, multimillion-copy bestselling Little People, BIG DREAMS series, discover the incredible life of Gloria Steinem, the world’s most famous feminist.
Gloria realised from a young age that the women were treated differently than men, and that wasn’t fair. Beginning her career as a journalist, her witty and honest articles challenged readers to see the world through her eyes. Following in the footsteps of her suffragist grandmother, she became passionate about feminism and grassroots activism.
There was so much work to be done, and Gloria kept working – she became a passionate leader in the women’s liberation movement and dedicated her life to brining about change. A spokesperson for an entire generation, to this day Gloria inspires us to keep working for a fairer society – for everyone.
