Gloria Steinem is synonymous with the advancement of women’s social equality in America and throughout the world. Early in her career, she simply defined feminism as “the belief that women are full human beings.”
Join us as Ms. Steinem reflects on her involvement in the social movements of the past four decades discussing the politics of gender, the economic power of the female and minority consumer market and workplace issues. She will also address the central issue of how we can foster a national spirit of cooperation to continue the advancement of the rights of all citizens.
Gloria Steinem convened the historic 1971 Women’s Political Caucus, founded the Coalition of Labor Union Women and is president of Voters for Choice. She also established the Ms. Foundation for Women. Her books include the best-sellers Revolution from Within: A Book of Self-Esteem, Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions, Moving Beyond Words and Marilyn: Norma Jean. She is currently at work on Road to the Heart: America As if Everyone Mattered, a book about her more than thirty years on the road as a feminist organizer.
