    There are so many good stories in this book This memoir focuses on Steinem's travels around the world and her political and activist experiences in the United States When people ask me why I still have hope and energy after all these years I always say Because I travel For than four decades I've spent at least half my time on the road I've never tried to write about this way of life not even when I was reporting on people and events along
