Frequently bought together
“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
“Gloria brings honest poetry to readers while sharing her experienced wisdom on topics that demand our attention today. From personal challenges to political issues, The Truth Will Set You Free, But First It Will Piss You Off! explores the power of words when it comes to being a changemaker for yourself and for the good of humanity. And if that’s not enough to move you, the beautiful illustrations will inspire you along the way.”—Janelle Monáe

This is largely a book of quotations, but it is interspersed with essays (both short and long) that will explain, illuminate, and inspire.
- Makes you think.
- Helps you understand.
- In its way, condenses the essence of feminism and empowerment for women.
- In the Introduction, Steinem writes, “Eventually, the sheer number of Americans marching and opposing the war forced President Lyndon Johnson to resign and President Richard Nixon to preside over our retreat [from Vietnam].” Johnson did NOT resign; he chose not to run for a second full term (having already served a term and a half because of JFK’s assassination), partly out of concern for his health. Good call. He died 4 years and 2 days after he left office.
BOTTOM LINE: Great book club book! Great solo read. Remind yourself what matters.
Great intro and overview of the fundamentals of feminism. Thought provoking and endearing. A must read!

Okay, no, that isn’t it. It is true. I do love her. I love her writing and I love her feminist views and I love her attitude and I wish I was bolshy, like her. In her book The Truth Will Set You Free we get a collection of her quotations and quotes from other people. They are all inspirational and I really don’t have anything to say about this books that isn’t positive. It is a perfect boost to make your day more positive.
