Steinem writes a lot about the power of language to change thought. Part of what makes Steinem so enjoyable to read is how she manages to be critical of her former beliefs without any accompanying regret. She is honest about her pre-feminist ideas without punishing herself. She is always empathetic — even with herself — but never excuses or justifies anti-feminist behavior. In this piece, Steinem challenges the truism that individuals begin their adulthood with liberal values and become increasingly conservative as they age. Steinem proposes that this trend is completely reversed with women. This idea struck me as very intuitive and provocative.
