The Truth Will Set You Free, But First It Will Piss You Off! : Thoughts on Life, Love, and Rebellion
by Gloria Steinem and Samantha Dion Baker


Overview - A beautifully illustrated collection of Gloria Steinem's most inspirational and outrageous quotes, with an introduction and essays by the feminist activist herself

For decades--and especially now, in these times of crisis--people around the world have found guidance, humor, and unity in Gloria Steinem's gift for creating quotes that offer hope and inspire action. From her early days as a journalist and feminist activist, Steinem's words have helped generations to empower themselves and work together.

Covering topics from relationships ("Many are looking for the right person. Too few are trying to be the right person.") to the patriarchy ("Men are liked better when they win. Women are liked better when they lose. This is how the patriarchy is enforced every day.") and activism ("Revolutions, like trees, grow from the bottom up."), this is the definitive collection of Steinem's words on what matters most. Steinem sees quotes as "the poetry of everyday life," so she also has included a few favorites from friends, including bell hooks, Flo Kennedy, and Michelle Obama, in this book that will make you want to laugh, march, and create some quotes of your own. In fact, at the end of the book, there's a special space for readers to add their own quotes and others they've found inspiring.

The Truth Will Set You Free, But First It Will Piss You Off is both timeless and timely. It is a gift of hope from Steinem to readers, and a book to share with friends.

Advance praise for The Truth Will Set You Free, But First It Will Piss You Off

"Gloria has a profound knack for expressing ideas in ways that stick with you. When trying to explain something that I can't seem to wrap my own words around, I very often reach for one of Gloria's quotes. This beautiful book of her words will no doubt make one of the most quotable women I know even more eminently quotable."--Emma Watson

"When the path is dark, Gloria's words light the way forward. I find myself returning again and again to her words for inspiration, comfort, and wisdom. She has a way of saying things you feel you knew but never knew how to articulate. Other times, she expresses ideas you've never encountered, but once you've heard them, they are impossible to deny. Her words contain the poetic clarity only truth offers."--Natalie Portman
