Here is a list and short description of the websites and books that I used to research Gloria Steinem!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gloria_Steinem

“Gloria Steinem.” Wikipedia. Wikimedia Foundation, 26 Nov. 2014. Web. 28 Nov. 2014.

Wikipedia is always a good place to start researching your eminent person. It gives you summary of their life and achievements, basic facts, history and other links to people/places/events related to the person.

“The Official Website of Author and Activist Gloria Steinem – Home.” The Official Website of Author and Activist Gloria Steinem – Home. N.p., n.d. Web. 25 Nov. 2014.

Sometimes your person may even have their own website. I used Gloria Steinem’s website to get a look on her career and to see if there were any books written about her. Luckily, there are a few about her, and I was lucky enough to read two of them and they are the following:

The Education of a Woman: The Life of Gloria Steinem

http://www.amazon.com/Education-Woman-Life-Gloria-Steinem/dp/0345406214

Heilbrun, Carolyn G. The Education of a Woman: The Life of Gloria Steinem. New York: Dial, 1995. Print.

The Education of a Woman, was written by Carolyn Heilbrun, who was actually a dear friend to Gloria. Although this book is has immense detail, it didn’t truly go in chronological order, so I found it dificult sometimes to follow along and know where I was in her life. However, if you want to focus more on her personal life (childhood, family, relationships) this is an excellent book.

Gloria Steinem: Her Passions, Politics, and Mystique

http://www.amazon.ca/Gloria-Steinem-Passions-Politics-Mystique/dp/1559724099

Stern, Sydney Ladensohn. Gloria Steinem: Her Passions, Politics, and Mystique. Secaucus, NJ: Carol Pub. Group, 1997. Print.

I mainly used this book because of a couple of reasons,

1) It went in chronological order (thank god)

2) The book had background information as well as information on Gloria

3) Did I mention that is was in chronological order AND included an index?

I found it very easy to follow and kept me interested. Definitely a must-read if Gloria is your eminent person, or interested in reading about her!

“After Black Power, Women’s Liberation”

Personally I can’t read about one person for very long, so luckily there is a HBO documentary on Gloria, however if you don’t have HBO “you can’t watch it” I won’t say, but there are other ways to watch it…. use the internet for good kids…
