This book is about Gloria Steinem
"Marilyn," published on January 1, 1988, delves deep into the enigmatic and poignant life of Marilyn Monroe with a penetrating gaze through the lens of social justice leader Gloria Steinem. This compelling biography not only presents rare photographs from the final weeks of Monroe’s life but also offers groundbreaking insights into her struggles with the intersecting pressures of gender and fame. As Steinem explores Monroe's navigation through a male-dominated Hollywood and her hidden battles with racial injustices, readers are invited to reflect on the broader implications of her story in today’s context of gender equality and racial justice. Designed for adult education, this book serves as a powerful tool for understanding how personal turmoil and public persona can reflect and influence societal values and movements. "Marilyn" encourages readers to question how much has changed and what remains the same in the fight for equality across various domains.
