At the turn of the 19th and the 20th century, the first-wave feminism swept the world with women fighting desperately for their rights and against the centuries-long patriarchal terror. This was only the first step on a long and bumpy road to changes. Decades later, in 1960s, another wave of feminism spilled over America and Europe, led by women who were disappointed with the lack of change despite over fifty years that had passed since the initial revolution. Inspired by the successes of the civil rights movement, they were able to make the world listen, finally. One of the leaders, as well as a spokeswoman, of this second wave was Gloria Steinem, a traveller, journalist, and writer. The film tells the story of the most important periods of her life - from her formative years and her trips to Europe and India to fighting to be heard in the male-centric world of the 1960s journalism - and presents a fascinating portrait of a fearless woman who became a recognized symbol of social and political change.
