“The truth will set you free. But first, it will piss you off.”–Gloria Steinem
Feminist and journalist, Gloria Steinem was a key figure in the women’s movement from 1969. She founded Ms. magazine, starting in 1972. She is an outspoken advocate for the Equal Rights Amendment and helped found the National Women’s Political Caucus.
I met Ms. Steinem in New York City at a Women’s Funding Network gathering fundraiser in 2007. Happy birthday, Gloria (who turns 76 today) — and thank you.
