  In her first book in over 20 years, Gloria Steinem -- writer, activist, and organizer -- offers a candid account of how her early years led her to an on-the-road kind of life: traveling, listening to people, learning, and creating change. 

In My Life on the Road, Steinem writes about some of the extraordinary people, famous and not, from whom she has learned along the way. She also reflects on how the most transformative ideas sometimes come from unexpected people and encounters. 

Gloria Steinem co-founded Ms. magazine and helped found New York magazine. In 2013, she received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama. 

We spoke with Gloria Steinem last night -- as news was emerging from San Bernadino -- about her initial reaction to last week's deadly shooting in Colorado Springs, where Richard Dear has been charged with three counts of murder for killing a responding police officer and two others who were inside a Planned Parenthood facility there.
