PPMobileBannerSteinem"I think the fact that I’ve become a symbol for the women’s movement is somewhat accidental. A woman member of Congress, for example, might be identified as a member of Congress; it doesn’t mean she’s any less of a feminist but she’s identified by her nearest male analog. Well, I don’t have a male analog so the press has to identify me with the movement. I suppose I could be referred to as a journalist, but because Ms. is part of a movement and not just a typical magazine, I’m more likely to be identified with the movement. There’s no other slot to put me in." Gloria Steinem -- Particular Passions: Talks with Women Who Shaped Our Times, by Lynn Gilbert. Gloria-Steinem-wborder-WEBThe oral biography of Gloria Steinem, whose dedication to feminism and social justice continues to improve life for millions of people worldwide.
