    Always terrific looking, often photographed and written about, she had a string of high-profile lovers including Robert Benton, Mike Nichols, Ted Sorenson, Stanley Pottinger and Mort Zuckerman.

She mentions a secret love in her diaries, but it was never revealed who the person was. Alger's evocative but chaste rhetoric speaks of "budding maidens at school," suggesting that "in their mental caresses, spiritual nuptuals, their thoughts kiss each other Instead we learn that Steinem's friends love her, that her ex-lovers speak warmly of her, that her only flaws are an excess of generosity and a desire to avoid conflict, that if she stumbles into a quarrel it's invariably the other person's fault.
