For decades, Gloria Steinem has led a social revolution against injustice. In Revolution from Within -- called "the ultimate self-help book" by the Los Angeles Times -- she sets out to restore the self-authority that such injustice has undermined.

This meeting will strike sparks of recognition and encouragement." --Alice Walker, author of The Color Purple
