Based on Steinem’s 2016 memoir, Life on the Road, the film delves into Steinem’s life as a traveler, and how the encounters she had while traveling and listening to the people she met along the way helped shape her.

Moore isn’t the only one stepping into the feminist’s shoes. In addition, Lulu Wilson, Ryan Kiera Armstrong, and fellow Academy Award winner Alicia Vikander all portray Steinem across various stages of her life as pivotal moments of her work as an activist for women are brought to life.
