Antoinette asked, “Was there an ah-ha moment where you were inspired to write Revolution from Within?” Gloria laughed and said, “We write what we need to read. We need to learn to treat ourselves as well as we treat others. If we walk past a mirror and criticize our bodies, a girl is watching. We need to walk in and look in the mirror and say, ‘I look fan-fu**ing-tastic!’” That became the day’s mantra. When asked how we all can break free of that, she gave this thought-provoking advice, “Imagine your 10-year-old self watching you. Before you were 10, you were prob- ably climbing trees saying, ‘I know what I want, and I know what I think.’ That is still in you.”

Gloria pointed out that we live in a society that tells us our rank in a hierarchical line and we need to understand that we are better off linked in a circle. “We don’t learn from sameness, we learn from our differences.” Steinem said. “If we seek out different people every day, we are likely to learn from them.” Antoinette finished by asking, “How do we have courage?” Gloria wisely answered, “We get it from each other. It’s our community that holds us account- able. We can all contribute something unique. Each of us is a unique miracle combination of heredity and environ- ment that will never happen again.”
