Gloria's Voice: The Story of Gloria Steinem—Feminist, Activist, Leader

(3) K-3 Author-illustrator Lewis's debut picture book is more an affectionate snapshot of the feminist than it is a substantive first biography. Still, the text conveys the gist of Steinem's early inspirations ("Gloria's mama has to stay home and take care of their family... Gloria thinks this is very unfair"), her involvement in women's liberation, and her founding of Ms. magazine. Stylish mixed-media illustrations evoke a 1960s aesthetic. Reading list.
