My name is Briana. I'm in the 10th grade at Dutch Fork High School in Columbia, South Carolina. My Humanities class is doing a project called "Guess Who's coming to Dinner". It's where we pick a person who has something to do with History. I chose Gloria Steinem - because she has brought feminist issues to the attention of many people.

I'm trying to get information on Gloria's life. I have to dress up in clothes that resemble something she would wear and give a speech about her life and why she is important to our history. Also, we have to make a dinner plate of some type of food that she likes to make. My teacher asked us to make sure that the food represents something about where she lives or has lived before. If you have any information that would help me with my project please let me know. Thank you very much. Sincerely, Briana


Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM. If you send me your mailing address, I will have someone mail you more information on Gloria Steinem.

In the meantime, I wanted to answer your specific questions. Since I know Gloria, I know both what she wears and what she eats.

1.) Clothing--she often wears jeans with boots and a big sweater and/or a blouse. You can most likely find her wearing black or browns--or sometimes a combination of both. She doesn't have pierced ears, so she often doesn't wear earings. She usually wears silver rings for everyday wear or gold rings if she is dressing up for some reason. She wears glasses or contacts--there's no determining which.

2.) Gloria is a vegetarian. Sometimes she eats fish and sometimes dairy--but mostly fruits and vegetables. She loves grapefruits or protein shakes. She also loves raw almonds and occassionally eats soups. She doesn't cook much. Since she lives in New York City she often orders in, which is common among New Yorkers.

I hope that helps -- Good luck.
