Meet Ms. Gloria Steinem


Today, I am writing about world-reknown feminist, Gloria Steinem. You might know who she is so I am going to tell you things that you might not know about her. You can visit her website at

Ms. Steinem was a CIA operative.

  • She lived in India for two years.
  • She never stayed through a whole school year until she was twelve years old. (That is sixth grade!)
  • She is a breast cancer survivor.
  • She is the co-founder of Ms. magazine.
  • Christian Bale is her step-son.
  • She created “Take Your Daughters to Work Day”
  • She was influenced by Gandhi.
  • She’s a graduate of Smith College. So is my great Aunt – Sally Eaton. Sally graduated when she was in her 60’s!

I hope that you learned a little bit more about her. If you are Gloria or know more about her, please send us an email.
