GLORIA STEINEM – who dedicates her life to ensuring we know that we are not broken, but were born into a system intended to break us – lives in the DNA of millions who are giving birth to movements or to themselves.
She reminds us why there’s nothing more radical than telling the truth of our lives, and listening to the truth of others’ lives.
She reminds us that leaving our lives unlived is no badge of honor.
She reminds us of the thirst-quenching, life-giving, revolutionary power of laughter.
She reminds us of the three different kinds of laughter, and that we can do hard things – like laugh our way to liberation.
