Q: I am doing a research paper on the women's movement. My paper is centered around the life of Gloria Steinem. I was wondering if you could give me any information about her. I would really appreciate it. Some of the questions that I would like to answer are:
1. What is the Background of the Gloria Steinem?
2. What led her to the women's movement?
3. what influence does she have on the movement?
4. What long-term impact will her part play in women's rights?

Thank you very much for your time. Christy

 

Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM. Here are some references, where you can find the answers to your questions:

1. What is the Background of the Gloria Steinem?
SEE CAROLYN HEILBRUN'S BIOGRAPHY-- THE EDUCATION OF A WOMAN.
2. What led her to the women's movement?
SEE "LIFE BETWEEN THE LINES"--AN ARTICLE WRITTEN BY GLORIA IN HER BOOK, OUTRAGEOUS ACTS AND EVERYDAY REBELLIONS. OR IF YOU CAN GET YOUR HANDS ON IT, SEE "AFTER THE BLACK POWER MOVEMENT, WOMEN'S LIBERATION" PUBLISHED IN NEW YORK MAGAZINE IN 1968. THIS WAS GLORIA'S FIRST "FEMINIST" ARTICLE.
3. What influence does she have on the movement?
FOR THIS QUESTION, I THINK YOU SHOULD ASK PEOPLE WHO ARE ACTIVE IN THE WOMEN'S MOVEMENT. I THINK SHE'S HAD BIGGER IMPACT THAN ANYONE ELSE. SHE HAS BRIDGED THE WOMEN'S MOVEMENT WITH OTHER SOCIAL JUSTICE MOVEMENTS. SHE HAS GOTTEN TO THE HEART OF THE ISSUES. SHE LISTENS TO WOMEN.....

4. What long-term impact will her part play in women's rights?
TIME WILL TELL, BUT MY QUESS IS THAT BECAUSE OF GLORIA EVERYONE'S LIFE--MEN AND WOMEN--WILL BE BETTER, FULLER, MORE INFORMED ABOUT WHAT WE WANT FROM LIFE AND HOW TO GET IT......
