Description :

Writer, lecturer, editor, journalist, social and political activist, and self-described “hope-aholic,” Gloria Steinem became nationally recognized as a leader and spokeswoman for the feminist movement in the late 1960s and early 70s. Hear her talk about the path that led her there, including a challenging childhood and a short stint as a Playboy Bunny. 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." Steinem currently travels internationally as an organizer and lecturer and is a media spokeswoman on issues of equality.

Steinem’s numerous awards include the National Magazine awards, an Emmy Citation for excellence in television writing, the Lifetime Achievement in Journalism Award from the Society of Professional Journalists, the Society of Writers Award from the United Nations, and in 2013, the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Obama. Her books include the bestsellers Revolution from Within: A Book of Self-Esteem, Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions, Moving Beyond Words, and Marilyn: Norma Jean, on the life of Marilyn Monroe. Her forthcoming book Diary of a Nomad: My Life on the Road (her first in 20 years and with all new material, October 2015) is an inspiring, intimate memoir that tells her whole life story.
