Particular Passions

Particular Passions: Talks with Women who Shaped our Times

The oral biography of Gloria Steinem, whose dedication to feminism and other movements for social justice continues to improve life for millions of people worldwide.

“There aren’t two sides to everything. There are eleven, or a hundred... and it’s a gross distortion of reality to say... there has to be a winner or a loser. Reality is much more diverse and interesting than that.

In later years, if I’m remembered at all it will be for inventing a phrase like “reproductive freedom”... as a phrase it includes the freedom to have children or not to. So it makes it possible for us to make a coalition.

I think the revolutionary role of a writer is to make language that makes coalition possible, language that makes us see things in a new way.

I do get burned out from time to time... I didn’t pace myself. I just went flat out, lecturing, organizing... Then I would stop... and do something else... You can’t be flat-out active all the time... you need time to think and read. You’ve got to be active in cycles.”
