Publisher's Summary

"...the deepest reason for the self-deprecation and uncertainty of rich women may be the simplest: the closer we are to power, the more passive we must be kept. Intimacy and access make rebellion very dangerous."

In The Problem with Rich Women, Gloria Steinem explores how and why feminism failed to reach women in powerful families, and provides an urgent and persuasive argument for rebellion among upper-class women. The Problem with Rich Women was originally published in Ms., June 1986.

intelligent & insightful

Gloria points out that being wealthy or privileged does not lessen the need for a woman to use her God given abilities. Nor does it lessen the need to reach out to other women.
