Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions by Gloria Steinem
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
2016 was a rough year for the equality of women, and 2017 isn't off to a great start either. Lots of people are rereading relevant fiction such as Atwood's Handmaid's Tale, or the more generally dystopian (as opposed to feminist) 1984 by Orwell. But we need to revisit nonfiction works as well. This book is educational about the history and current reality of sexism in America, but it's also a bit of a how-to manual on achieving more progress.
I strongly recommend this book. Even if you flip through to only read the essays you're most interested in, you will find something valuable.
