This is a phenomenal book of essays by one of America’s greatest feminist writers (and founder of Ms. Magazine). Steinem’s undercover adventure as a Playboy Bunny in the 1960s is entertaining and highly relevant in today’s Me Too culture. Her coverage of Linda Lovelace’s role in Deep Throat is an eye-opening look at the porn industry in America. This book shows how far we’ve come in the last years, and how far we still have to go.
Last year, I took my dog-eared copy and placed in it my 8-year old’s bookcase. Someday she’ll read it; I hope by then she’ll say I can’t believe that it was like this, and I’m glad it’s not anymore.
