Gloria Steinem

'The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.' – Gloria Steinem

 

An ode to the audacious and wonderful women who have come before us, each week throughout Youthquake 2.0, we will be featuring and celebrating a trailblazer from days gone by, their legacy everlasting.

 

Meet muse one, a fierce and brave soul, championing life as we know now, the one and only Gloria Steinem.

 

An American journalist, political activist, as self professed 'Radical Femininst', Steinem is considered the face of the women's liberation movement in the '70s and a pivotal player in the formation of the equal rights we see and enjoy today. From the numerous speeches and articles, protests and rallies, she's been a part of over her passionate eighty four years, Steinem has never failed to put a spotlight on the equal rights narrative. Resonating now more than ever, a fight that is far from over, we celebrate Gloria, a modern Wonder Woman to us all.

‘I never wanted to be a politician or elected person myself, so I loved to work for other women who did—and hope that more girls will do that. The problem is the feeling that we’re divided from politics, that our vote doesn't count or what we do doesn't count. In fact, everything we do counts.’

‘Feminism has never been about getting a job for one woman. It’s about making life more fair for women everywhere. It's not about a piece of the existing pie; there are too many of us for that. It’s about baking a new pie.’
