After helping found New York magazine in 1968, where she was a political columnist and wrote feature articles, Steinem co-founded Ms. Magazine in 1972, and remained one of its editors for 15 years. In 2005, Steinem, Jane Fonda, and Robin Morgan co-founded the Women's Media Center, an organization that works "to make women visible and powerful in the media."
