Gloria Steinem has been a champion for women's rights and the feminist movement since the '60s. The Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient used her publication, Ms.
magazine, as a catalyst for social change. In her new book, My Life on the Road
, Gloria shares an intimate account of her travels over the last eight decades and how they've shaped both her personal journey and her life as a feminist leader. Here, Gloria reveals to Oprah the rituals that have kept her feeling empowered and energized over the years. Chief among them: intimate dinner dates with her most cherished friends.
"We have had dinner every month for 30 years," Gloria says. "It's just so important to have friends you trust. You know that they will tell you when you're messing up. They will celebrate when you, finally, after 20 years, publish a book."
