Gloria Steinem’s first book in 20 years, “My Life on the Road,” chronicles her travels as a journalist and an activist visiting college campuses across the United States. Steinem sees travel as a transformative act, a way to truly understand the rich diversity of people in the U.S. For her, travel is also a way for women to escape their traditional place in the home, to get away from expectations and to grow. We’ll discuss Steinem’s memoir and get her thoughts on the effort to defund Planned Parenthood, Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid and the state of feminism today.
