在她的身上,看到了沉熟和謙虛。也充滿重大的意義,提供深刻的個人見解,更深度了解之所以為她的原因。──歐普拉雜誌

Gloria Steinem的生命道路是充滿力量與特別的。她用動人、優美的散文,傳達她畢生的抒情和公平的追求……她的經驗提供一個世代的回憶……未來的希望的燈塔。──USA Today

Gloria Steinem為60年代後期和70年代早期婦女解放運動的代表人物,
《Ms.》雜誌創辦人,獲得2013年歐巴馬頒發總統自由勳章。這樣一位與眾不同的獨特女性,有一個流動的童年。當她還是小女孩,每到秋天,父親就開著車載著家人到野外尋求冒險和嘗試謀生,啟發了她積極面,善於思考,勇於突破的個性,也開啟她變革的一生。

81的她,不曾想過「退休」,反而努力筆耕,以自傳型體發表本書,暢談她的成長歷程、革命運動,以及在旅途中不斷迸發出令人驚訝的遭遇,值得一書是她20世紀60年代的記者工作,參與社會活動, 1977年參加全國婦女大會,以及她穿越保守的印度之旅……當然還有她個人的情感,母親的精神病、丈夫的驟世、自己罹癌的過程,都讓她深刻體認生命的意義,將之轉變為對社會的貢獻,改變世界的力量。

沉穩、謙虛和誠實面對她的弱點,不美化自己,讀來更能發人深省,鼓舞人心,在生活與心靈獲得不一樣的感動與啟示。

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • ONE OF O: THE OPRAH MAGAZINE’S TEN FAVORITE BOOKS OF THE YEAR • Gloria Steinem—writer, activist, organizer, and inspiring leader—now tells a story she has never told before, a candid account of her life as a traveler, a listener, and a catalyst for change.

When people ask me why I still have hope and energy after all these years, I always say: Because I travel. Taking to the road—by which I mean letting the road take you—changed who I thought I was. The road is messy in the way that real life is messy. It leads us out of denial and into reality, out of theory and into practice, out of caution and into action, out of statistics and into stories—in short, out of our heads and into our hearts.

Gloria Steinem had an itinerant childhood. When she was a young girl, her father would pack the family in the car every fall and drive across country searching for adventure and trying to make a living. The seeds were planted: Gloria realized that growing up didn’t have to mean settling down. And so began a lifetime of travel, of activism and leadership, of listening to people whose voices and ideas would inspire change and revolution.

My Life on the Road is the moving, funny, and profound story of Gloria’s growth and also the growth of a revolutionary movement for equality—and the story of how surprising encounters on the road shaped both. From her first experience of social activism among women in India to her work as a journalist in the 1960s; from the whirlwind of political campaigns to the founding of Ms. magazine; from the historic 1977 National Women’s Conference to her travels through Indian Country—a lifetime spent on the road allowed Gloria to listen and connect deeply with people, to understand that context is everything, and to become part of a movement that would change the world.

In prose that is revealing and rich, Gloria reminds us that living in an open, observant, and “on the road” state of mind can make a difference in how we learn, what we do, and how we understand each other.
