Abstract
This interview was conducted in September 1995 when Gloria Steinem visited Iowa City during her book tour for the second edition of Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions. Republished in 1995, initially published in 1983, and consisting of essays first released as early as 1963, Outrageous Acts provides an occasion for us to think between decades of American feminist political, cultural, and academic endeavor. As academic feminists of the third wave, we took this opportunity to engage Gloria Steinem as a public intellectual whose cultural work calls us to interrogate both contemporary culture’s “friendly” incorporations and recent “feminist” hostile repudiations of the legacy that is the second wave.
