Topic - Gloria Steinem
Nobody can really believe that Gloria Steinem has just turned 80 years old - and that includes Steinem herself.
A key figure in the American women's movement is coming to Massachusetts.
Gloria Steinem has a veil over her eyes. She is obviously quite blind to life in Saudi Arabia and several other Middle Eastern countries ("Gloria Steinem compares U.S. 'reproductive freedom' limits to Saudi Arabian subjugation of women," Web, April 22). Having spent considerable time in Saudi Arabia in several cities and with Saudis there and in the United States, I can say it is inconceivable that any person with a modicum of grounding in reality or common sense could make such a statement as Ms. Steinem did.
Longtime feminist activist Gloria Steinem compared some state-level efforts in the U.S. to limit "reproductive freedom" to the wide-ranging and intrusive controls on women in the male-dominated kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
The fight for women's equality first had to argue that it was a fight worth having.
Do Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway and Helen Mirren really need a category just for women _ a singular kind of affirmative action _ to snare one of Hollywood's favorite accessories, an Oscar, Emmy or Screen Actors Guild trophy?
Gloria Steinem has joined a new revolution _ the e-book revolution.
Meryl Streep is fresh off her Oscar win for playing Margaret Thatcher. But she had an entire theater at Lincoln Center wondering if an even better role for her would be a political icon closer to home: Hillary Rodham Clinton.
"It's shocking, I know," says Gloria Steinem, allowing herself a wry grin.
"It's an exact copy of Superman who came as a baby from the exploding planet Krypton," Steinem noted. "This destroys her home, her Amazon mother and sisters, and gives her no place to go to gain strength and create an inspiring storyline."
Adding pants, Steinem said in an e-mail message, "gives us the idea that only pants can be powerful — tell that to Greek warriors and Sumo wrestlers."
