Equality Work Isn’t Done

Gloria Steinem (who turns 73 on Sunday) one of the icons of the women's movement, said the next 70 years of the movement should see continued change.

Gloria Steinem was speaking to a Dominion University audience last week. They heard her contrast the past with what the future could be. "If you wanted to be a lawyer or an airline pilot, you married it, rather than became it," Steinem said of previous generations.

Steinem said we must learn to think less about horizontal history and more about vertical history, echoing her oft-repeated quote that the first problem for all humans, men and women, is not to learn, but to unlearn.
