Gloria: A Life

By Emily Mann

Paperback £18.99

Emily's Mann's play about the icon of the American feminist movement, Gloria Steinem. With a Foreword by Gloria Steinem herself.

Five decades after Gloria Steinem began raising her voice for equality and championing the voices of others, she remains a leader of the American feminist movement. Emily Mann's play Gloria: A Life traces the progress of Steinem's extraordinary life, from her undercover Playboy Bunny exposé in the 1960s, through her founding of Ms. Magazine in the 1970s, to her activism in today's women's movement.

Gloria: A Life was premiered Off-Broadway in 2018, directed by Diane Paulus.

'In many ways Gloria: A Life, a play about a movement, became a movement. For millennia, human beings have been sitting around campfires, telling and listening to each other's stories… Only being together with all five senses allows us to empathize, to understand, and to act. This is the magic of both a movement and a play. Like a pebble tossed into a pond, the ripples keep changing lives.' Gloria Steinem, from her Foreword

Press Quotes

'A unique, deeply moving performance created in the hopeful, conversational spirit of its extraordinary subject'

New York Magazine’s Vulture

'One part theater, one part consciousness-raising group therapy session, Gloria: A Life offers an experience that promises to be a more intimate recollection of Steinem’s journey, not only because it’s been singularly shaped by the hands of women'
