Happy Birthday, Gloria Steinem!!

At 79, Gloria Marie Steinem–one of the founding editors of Ms. magazine–still carries the torch for the feminist movement with the same grace, fervor and boundless energy that she has for 40-plus years. As a journalist, theorist, speaker and activist, she challenges and inspires us to keep our own energy fresh for fighting the good feminist fight. After all, as she wrote in the 40th anniversary issue of Ms., social movements “have to last at least a century to become part of global culture and everyday life.” We’re just halfway into the feminist century, so we’ve got another 50 years to go!

Happy birthday, dear Gloria, and many more!!

  2. Love you Gloria! Thanks for all your hard work for all of us. Happy Birthday!

  3. Happy Birthday, Gloria! Thank you so much for Ms. and for all your hard work for 40 years and more. This year I gave myself an early birthday gift, by becoming a Ms. subscriber. Best wishes for many more birthdays to come.

  4. Happy birthday, Ms. Steinem. And thank you. The work you did, and the light you shed, has given hope to so many. And for me personally, it was quite literally a life-saver. Without the enlightened encouragement and love I received many years ago in a support group for rape survivors–a group that would not have existed without the hard work of the women’s movement–it’s very likely I would not still be alive. Which means that the two strong, beautiful women I have raised and am about to send into the world would never have been born. You have touched so many lives. God bless you.

  7. Gloria Steinem continues to inspire!

    More than 40 years after women’s liberation movement stormed onto the scene opening a floodgate of dialogue about women’s rights, its deja vu all over again as women are still being moved around like pawns in a political arena.
    For decades women have consumed an abundant of conflicting and confining images about our role in the world. For an intriguing look at a visual smorgasbord of mid century female stereotypes that littered a pop culture landscape that eventually erupted in a women’s movement please view http://envisioningtheamericandream.com/2013/08/26/womens-equality-day/
