First off, who let Gloria Steinem become 86? The icon of the feminine movement who 48 years ago started Ms. magazine is now being portrayed in a screen flick this year. Caveat: It will take six actresses to portray her, well that makes sense.
All kid and aside, Gloria Steinem was born in Toledo, Ohio, graduated from Smith College, and worked as a NYC journalist prior to her Ms. Magazine life.
Here are a sampling of her accolades:
- Co-founder of New York Magazine and Ms. Magazine
- President of Ms. Foundation for Women
- Helped create Take Our Daughters To Work Day
- Board of Trustees Smith College
- Co-founder Women’s Media Center
- Emmy citation for excellent in television writing
- Julianne Moore
- Alicia Vikander
- Lulu Wilson
- Ryan Kiera Armstrong
- Rose Byrne
- Christine Lahti
YOU Go Gals – look forward to your exceptional portrayal of the greatest feminine icon our world has ever produced..
my favorite Gloria Steinem quote,
“A woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle.“
