Distinguished writer, lecturer and editor Gloria Steinem has been a leading media spokeswoman on issues of equality since 1972, when she co-founded Ms. Magazine. She continues to serve as a consulting editor for Ms., and was instrumental in the magazine’s move to join and be published by the Feminist Majority Foundation. In 1968, she had helped to found New York Magazine, where she was a political columnist and wrote feature articles for many years. She will present her view of the progress (or lack thereof) of the feminist movement, and her vision of a future of greater equality for all.
