Description

Gloria Steinem, icon of the women's liberation movement, is a co-founder of "Ms" magazine and author of the bestselling "Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions". Revealing her own long quest for self-esteem, she explores the nature of this quality, showing how crippling a lack of it can be, and how recapturing it can transform our lives. Too many of us lose our sense of self-worth early on. Girls are especially vulnerable, often turning from free spirits into 'female impersonators' by adolescence. Gloria Steinem describes how, by returning to her childhood self through techniques such as imagery, guided meditation and artistic expression, she rediscovered the strong, secure person every one of us is born to be. She states reassuringly that anyone can heal the inner child of the past through these and other means, and inspires us with case histories of people who came to know how valuable they are.show more
